Father Time
As we usher in a new design decade, Vitra is now featuring some rediscovered treasures from the past. Three Ceramic Clocks designed by George Nelson in the early 1950s were developed but never made it to the manufacturing stage. Based on the original design, Vitra is, for the first time ever, making these clocks available on the market.

They have all the form and whimsy of Nelson's work of that time. They look like fun little characters.

I love that these are finally being manufactured. Now if I can just find a dealer who sells them locally...

About Us

Christopher Scott and Jodi Vautrin are the husband and wife team behind Ourhaus, where they chronicle their adventures in home improvement, decorating and travel. After purchasing a unique loft space just a few miles north of Boston, they began photographing and writing about their projects and it blossomed into a creative outlet and platform.

When they’re not home improving, Jodi spends her days as a freelance creative director & designer with a focus on user interface and interactive design, and is an entrepreneur at heart. She serves on the board of AIGA Boston as Vice President of Emerging Ideas & Events.

In his professional life, Christopher is the Technology Director for a multi-service ad agency based in Harvard Square. In his private life, he enjoys tinkering in all its forms, whether it's rebuilding the Ourhaus home network (again), fooling himself into thinking he knows how to fix home appliances, or trying to unravel the mysteries of the guitar. He also flies planes, performs open heart surgery and sings at bar mitzvahs (though not all at the same time).

They share their “haus” with their adorable, highly food-motivated chocolate lab, Lucy.
