My mother had this in her kitchen in the seventies and early eighties. I think. You know, now I’m not sure. There was another clock in the kitchen in the eighties, a Spartus, that I remember. And, that was taken out in the eighties or early nineties because that stopped working. Okay, so I’m not really sure when, or if, this one was in the kitchen.
At any rate, this is a General Electric clock from the 1970’s featuring a design by Peter Max. It’s pretty neat.
Thanks to Deborah for inspiring today’s retro post. Otherwise, I’m not sure what today’s post would have been. Oh, I would have come up with something, but what?
And below is a high school art project:
It was a 3d sort of thing, using cut-up egg cartons and styrofoam and stuff to make the different layers. We had to photocopy images from magazines. Just black and white copies. Color copies were expensive in those days. Around $2.00 a copy! I chose a “time” theme, with space too. Space-time! You picked a color and selectively colored things. I picked yellow so it was like gold.
You can almost see the “TIME” spelled out along the bottom. It’s easier to see in person than it is in the photo!
Curious. The background almost matches my current blog space-themed background…
