About Leonie Lacouette Leonie Lacouette manages to strike a balance between concepts and influences that might otherwise seem like polar opposites. Her elegant clocks successfully reconcile th strict geometries of Minimalism with a warm, approachable palette
of colored patinas on the copper and nickel are not only beautiful, but often playful was well. In one design, the otherwise hidden movement of the pendulum swings gently back and forth, revealed by a perfectly circular hole punched through
the face of the piece to create a dynamic (and unexpected) game of "hide-and-seek."
Over 25 years ago, Lacouette started making clocks as a practical way to make a living while using the aesthetic training she'd received in art school. It all began when she needed a clock for her studio, and noticed an ad in a magazine for clock mechanisms
for sale. Ordering five, she used one to make her own timepiece, and then made four more to sell. They sold immediately, and she has been making clocks ever since.
