Jodrell grandfather Nixie clock

Jodrell grandfather Nixie clock


Jodrell is a collaborative piece designed with Paul Parry of Bad Dog Designs. It is a contemporary take on the traditional grandfather clock.

The clock uses four IN-12 Nixie tubes set in a circular brass plate. It is WiFi enabled for time synchronisation. and has a switchable backlight which bounces reflected light from the dish. When this backlight is turned off it is replaced by a rotating glow that indicates the passing seconds.

This floor standing Nixie clock is named ‘Jodrell’ as a nod to the British scientific observatory at Jodrell Bank. This is because it has the appearance of something that is waiting patiently for incoming extraterrestrial communications.
