Ofek Wertman clocks are as modern as they get. Made from wood or aluminum, all his clocks have a sleek look to them whether it be a filtered photograph from two of Israel's most famous places or one of his original pieces. These pieces include a Kinetic Star of David clock built in layer to tell the time that twist and turn, and graffiti Israel leaders.

Armenian Ceramic clocks are a special way to have a piece of modern Jerusalem in your home. Artists from Armenia were brought over to Israel in 1919 to fix the ceramic tiles in the Temple Mount and have been making beautiful pieces of ceramic art ever since. Armenian Ceramic clocks are just one small part of all the things Armenian Ceramic artists do. Choose from clocks with a bold and bright border or those with a decorative inner section of Jerusalem, Shalom, flowers, and mosaic art. Some even have Hebrew letters instead of number for a fun twist- the Hebrew numerical equivalence of Aleph to Yud Bet will help you keep track of time!
