Behind The Scenes

Palomarie Clocks In

Katia’s time-sensitive tatt. For as long as she can remember, Katia Davidson, the architecturally minded designer behind the jewelry line Palomarie, has been fascinated with the measure of time. Hell, she even has a tattoo of a binary clock on her forearm (see above). Below, a mix of Katia’s favorite time pieces—some more practical than others. —blythe sheldon 1) Qlocktwo by Biegert & Funk “They’ve made a nice app if you can’t afford the actual clock—a simple and thoughtful design.” 2) Eternity by Alecia Eggert “This is a wall-mounted sculpture. It employs 30 electric clock movements and 36 hour and minute hands. Once every 12 hours the hands align to spell the word eternity.” 3) Binary clocks “I had a version of one of these in high school that no longer functions. I like that time could be represented as data and values, instead of just numbers. I loved the idea of it so much that it is manifested in the form of a tattoo on my forearm.” 4) Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz “The Ink Calendar makes use the timed pace of the ink spreading on the paper to indicate time. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are ‘printed’ daily. Once a day, a number is filled with ink until the end of the month. Since the calendar self-updates, it enhances the perception of time passing.” 5) Monthly interactive calendars by Pattern Matters “I love that there’s a kinetic element to these. The whole idea of rotation and gears manipulating this pattern (out of paper!) is so creative, but, at the same time, it’s just another abstraction of time being measured radially.” 6) Wall calendar by Populäre Produkte “Yes, it’s minimal, but it’s also the most practical of all the ones I’ve listed. The wall calendar comes with these custom, die-cut Post-its to mark events for certain dates. What I love is the image of the calendar marked with what looks like a random assortment of these notes—it’s this still image of the year’s highlights.” Speaking of time: Mark your calendars for 10a ET tomorrow when we release Katia’s edition.

The Palomarie Design Time Capsule

Katia Davidson’s architecture background goes well beyond the drafting table. The force behind the Austin-based jewelry line Palomarie has played in concrete and acrylic, making furniture and lamps before she found her way to necklaces and rings. Here, she traces her evolution as a designer through some of the (mind-blowingly awesome) things she’s constructed. —blythe sheldon Into the necklace below? Well, grad it while you can! Now! 1) Concrete tiles as research for an architectural process, 2010 “The concrete tiles were cast as models to study how light would move across a building façade. This process of building mock-ups and models is something that has remained constant throughout my process, no matter what I’m designing.” 2) Geometric lamp made out of translucent acrylic, 2011 “I was experimenting with different geometric forms—mostly platonic solids and planes that are cut into. It was a quick side project that I enjoyed doing—I was proud of the fact I did the wiring for the lamp, and it all turned out functional.” 3) Ash and walnut credenza built during a wood design class in school, 2011 “It was the first larger-scale piece that I designed and built on my own. I loved doing the physical labor for this piece—wood isn’t necessarily the easiest material to work with, and power tools are so much fun! I was intimidated at the beginning, though—I ended up basing the dimensions on my body. This piece is most commonly referred to as ‘the coffin.’” 4) Concrete rings, 2011 “These were the first pieces of jewelry that I made, once I made the decision to actually pursue jewelry design. I’ve learned so much since then. I think you can tell they were my first pieces by how literally they translated from architecture, but they also still relate to my current pieces in their simplicity and geometric form.” 5) My edition for Of a Kind, 2012 “For my collaboration with Of a Kind, I continued to explore the warrior-like quality of my first collection. I’d re-read Dante’s Inferno—and then I got caught up in all the Hunger Games books. As a result, I created a character of a huntress who guided people through the forest she lived in, and I designed everything for her.”
