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 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.
This is a really neat hourglass. We really like it it came quickly and it looks nice. My only wish was that it came with a funnel as it's hard to find one that small of size!
Had to glue in the pieces myself which was easy to do as long as you have some wood glue to assemble it.
The wood was a little more red than I expected but it was simply beautiful! I can tell that a lot of hard work went into creating the piece. I ordered the 60 min hourglass and it clocked in at 60 mins and 10 seconds - talk about accurate! My brother for whose graduation it was purchased simply loves it!
There was an issue with my address but it was resolved and with the best possible experience - vacations and all!
it looks greatwe got it for our daughter. She is going to use it for her vintage wedding. I'll send you pics if you want?
Service was great right on time like they said. Thank you
