Recycling New Zealand art to make a clock
When you've got to the end of the year and your calendar has expired, it's sometimes too hard to throw the calendar away. This was the case with our 2021 calendar of New Zealand native birds, beautifully created by New Zealand artist Michaela Cox.

If you're interested in how the clocks were made, here's a little video I made:
