A look at the making of the Ikepod hourglass

Ikepod gave me these amazing black and white shots of the production of the hourglass designed by Marc Newson. As the photos depict, they are painstaking made by hand at Glaskeller in Basel, Switzerland. The mini hourglass made for Only Watch is produced in the exact same way, except it’s smaller and coated in translucent red. They are actually stills from the video illustrating the production of the hourglass (which can be seen at the bottom of this post), but they capture the detail beautifully. – SJX
