This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid padauk wood grown in Africa. The color is a redish-brown, often with dark stripes. It is moderately hard and heavy with a medium texture and large pores and a very smooth surface. An elegant and unique wood, it's redish brown color will deepen as the wood ages, taking on an antique look. If exposed to prolonged periods of direct sunlight it will turn a beautiful golden brown. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this piece is beautiful.
As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

I was extremely happy with the purchase of the hourglass. The craftsmanship was detailed and perfectly completed. This was a special birthday gift for my wife, and she loved it. We want it to become an item we can pass forward in the family for years to come.
The Padauk Hourglass was a lovely gift for our son and daughter-in-law. It was both a gift and a "prop," fitting in perfectly with the talk I gave at their wedding, about the passage of time and the importance of making the most of each season of their life together. Thank you for the prompt and safe delivery, and the expert craftsmanship. This very special hourglass will become a treasured family heirloom and a reminder of the precious gift of time.
