The Lost In Time is design-forward modern art. Watch components are meticulously placed to emote humanity and the power of the mind in Berd Vay'e's flagship creation. The components symbolically represent the complex inner workings of the mind. The skull is a steadfast reminder that time is precious and not forever.
Expert curators with a true passion for horology source parts for Berd Vay’e from vintage timepieces, including everything from 19th-century backwind pocket watches to stop clocks once used by railroad conductors.
All the components – gears, barrels, wheels, springs, escapement wheels, pinions, bridges, and hands – are restored and polished. Berd Vay’e then meticulously positions and balances them in crystal-clear, shatter-resistant Lucite. The layering process used to achieve the floating effect requires more than a day to complete. Afterward, the sculpture is carefully baked. This prevents air bubbles and imperfections, resulting in a seamless sculpture.
