Pizza time is all the time thanks to one pizza-loving artist.

 

Working out of her apartment in Chicago, product designer Claire Hogan, 24, took everyone’s favourite food, and gave us all an excuse to gorge on it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, by creating a ‘pizza clock.’

 

Taking two days to create, Claire covered a pizza in resin so it could be preserved, and then – using a clock making kit – the ingenious artist converted the beloved food into a fully functioning clock, even using pepperoni slices as hour markers.

 

Claire said: “I’m a product designer so functionally is always at the back of my mind. So one day when I was thinking about pizza, as I often do, I came to the realisation that pepperoni pizza kind of resembles a clock.

 

“I couldn’t get the image out of my head so I knew I had to make it. I could have just made it out of clay but I thought a real pizza would be funnier.”
