Waterwheel Clock

The Waterwheel Clock

"The design of the clock is a stylization of a waterwheel crafted by the artist to depict Tumwater's economic history since much of it is based on water-powered industry (sawmills, flour mills and hydroelectric generation).

The design of the waterwheel is intriguing from both an aesthetic and functional standpoint. Its handcrafted nature is intended to remind the viewer of the value of the craft traditions of the area."
