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.

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.

It is a truly beautifully carved piece. I really enjoyed reading the note about it's creator. This is going to be an amazing addition to our wedding ceremony and I look forward to displaying it for years to come. The customer service was also incredible. I made a mistake in my purchase and they reach out quickly and resolved it for me so easily. The person was always so nice and helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. This was a truly amazing experience.
The hourglass was beautiful and just what we wanted and expected.
The service was outstanding timely and helpful.
I wanted to use an hourglass for some functionality from our wedding memorabilia. I selected the hourglass with the wood from Africa since my husband and I developed our relationship during his deployment to Burundi Africa. Funny thing the letter we received from the farmer who carved our hourglass is a big fan of The Wizard of Oz so is my mother-in-law and our song selection for the parent dances was 'Over the Rainbow.'
The ordering was simple. I was a bit worried on the timing of the delivery because my account did not reflect a shipping notification. However the day I called/emailed about my order it literally arrived at our house within minutes.
