Southwest Clocks and Thermometers – DBM


Wild West Gift Emporium presents a collection of Indoor Wall Clocks, Patio Clocks, and Thermometers designed by Marty and Monique Lightner of Scottsdale, Arizona. The Clocks and Thermometers are made of natural terra-cotta material. They are imprinted, hand painted, and individually boxed. Clocks include a battery and have a Quartz movement.

Making a Southwest Clock or Thermometer

Every morning, Marty and Monique enter their studio and begin the process with forming the natural terra-cotta material by hand into the various shapes and designs. After the clay dries, they sand the items and place them to be fired into their kiln. This takes about 8 hours at a temperature of about 1850 degrees in order to harden the pieces.

Now, every piece is actually an original work of art as no two are exactly the same and not are absolutely flawless. That is a characteristic of a hand-made item. There could be a tiny imperfection such as an indentation, maybe the color is a little varied, or possibly even a fingerprint might be noticeable. But, this is what makes these pieces unique. And they have style and quality that can’t be found in a machine made product.
