Enter here to win a Tidepieces Animated Tide Clock as part of Connecticut Local Artist Night at Mellow Monkey.
Entering is easy. Just suggest a whimsical design or image you think would make a great tide clock. If your suggestion is selected by Tidepieces, you will win that Tide Clock!
The entry form is below, but have a look at these whimsical designs already offered first - so you can be sure to suggest an idea that could be a winner!
It's important to understand how Tidepieces Tide Clocks work. There are two dials that give you an accurate reading of the current tide you are tracking:
- Bottom dial provides the traditional tide clock showing current tide including hours to high tide and to low tide.
- Top dial is what makes this time piece truly unique. A mechanically animated display of the waterline that rises and falls as the tide goes from high to low.
- The TOP dial is where your suggested idea would be employed.
In this clock, a man in a boat appears to be floating on the water at high tide. But as the tide recedes, a giant crab is revealed holding the boat up with his two claws!
In this clock, the iconic Brooklyn bridge in a black and white rendering at high tide. But as the tide recedes, an unusual visitor is revealed.
In this clock, a person is fishing off the edge of a pier and has something on the end of the line that looks like a shark's fin! As the tide recedes, the catch is revealed to be a mermaid!
In this clock, penguins are playfully jumping off an ice cliff into the water at high tide. As the tide recedes, a hungry sea creature is catching the penguins for a meal (oh no!). A little reminder to "look before you leap." Good news for the orca - not so good news for the penguin.
Having seen a few examples of the whimsical tide clocks already offered by Tidepieces, consider an idea of image that could start off innocently at high tide, but revealing a surprise at low tide.
What image would you put here for both high tide and low?
Entry form is below. Winner will be announced on Nov 16th at Tidepieces Connecticut Local Artist Night - where they will be displaying the full collection of tide clocks available.
Be sure to attend CT Local Artist Night with Tidepieces
on Thursday, November 16th from 5 - 8pm
(preview 10am - 5pm)
