Oxidos is a Bogota, Colombia family owned company founded in 1994 by husband and wife Juan Carlos Bohorquez and artist Liliana Otalora. Together they design and produce colorful, whimsical clocks, Christmas Nativities and Ornaments made primarily from recycled metal scrap used in the production process by various industries.
Artist Liliana Otalora hires and trains individuals in need of employment to produce and hand paint each piece to her standards. They also learn soldering, assembly and ornamentation. Oxidos hand crafted products are far from mass produced. Each clock or holiday design may have slight variations making each piece unique.
Oxidos practices the principals of Fair Trade. The name Oxidos comes from the process of oxidation used to create the rusted patina on the metal prior to painting.
All Clocks have a moving pendulum!
Oxidos offers a wide selection of hand painted, colorful and whimsical wall and table clocks in a variety of color choices. Categories include: Birds, Animals, Flowers, Trees, Fish, Boats, Ocean, People and Miscellaneous.
Each clock has a quiet moving pendulum designed to be compatible with the clock itself. The moving pendulums enhances the appeal and marketability. Each clock also comes individually boxed with a SKU number and color on the outside to help with inventory and identification. Each box is suitable for gift wrapping. AAA or AA batteries are not provided.
