Ornamentation Project

When I hear "ornamentation", I think of objects that are overly decorated (with elements unnecessary to the function of the object), to the point that it becomes gaudy and ridiculous. I wanted to push this idea to the point where the ornamentation overtakes the function of the object. 

I chose to ornament a clock because it is an object with a very specific function: to display the time. The ornamentation has overtaken the clock-face and diminished the original function of the clock.
