​Keen clockologists created a cacophony of chronometers for the Claphams Clocks' recycled clock competition held over the summer holidays.

Out of the 23 entries, nine year-old Luka D’ Anvers won the $200 Prezzie card prize in the junior section  with her sparkling fish-themed clock featuring recycled CDs broken up and placed on a Nikau frond.

Fifteen year old Nathan McBryde  won the $200 Prezzie card prize in the senior section with his gadgety creation, featuring a robotic creature covered in all manner of scrap metal, levers and feet from sewing machines, devices and gauges.

Other outstanding entries included repainted hubcaps, coloured in prints with knitted loom bands, mosaics of stones and sea glass, a clock dangling from a cardboard tube Rayquaza Pokemon snake, a spring loaded invention, a sunflower crafted from Nescafe coffee sachet “petals”, old shearing shears, circular saw blades and painted milk bottle tops with garden stakes and plastic lids.

“We were so impressed by the line-up of entries it was very hard to choose the winners, but these two are very deserving,” said Claphams Clocks manager, Sarah Archer.

The competition was one of a range of activities the museum runs to introduce people to the weird and wacky world of clocks and the entries will be on display at Claphams Clocks until Friday 17th March.
