Constructing the Earth Clock
The body of the earth clock is manufactured using a traditional sand-casting technique in Takaoka city, Japan. Since the surface shape cannot be repaired once it has been cast, high-level expertise is required for the cast metal. Afterward, cutting to shape is performed on a precisely prepared lathe. The beauty of the form is realized by the expertise of skilled craftsmen.
