'Grandad’s Clock and Chair'
A comfortable-looking armchair and a grandfather clock have been sitting on this sidewalk for the last 30 years.
Grandad's Clock and Chair
A squashy-looking chair and a stately grandfather clock sit by the curb at the end of Chapel Street in Bradford, England. But they aren’t being moved or given away—they’ve been in the same place since the early 1990s. And they’re made out of stone.
Created by the artist Timothy Shutter, these pieces of stone furniture are a sculpture by the name of Grandad’s Clock and Chair. The piece was commissioned in 1991 by Bradford Council and Little Germany Action Group, and installed in 1992. Shutter created a bit of a mill owner’s office out of sandstone, with a chair, mirror, and grandfather clock.
