Magnetic Timer

At Sixes and Sevens

Create unique magnetised sculptures.

Place the hourglass onto the copper-coloured base stand and watch the iron filings fall from one end of the hour glass to the other. The base also contains a magnet so that as the filings drop they become magnetised, standing on end to create totally unique and beautiful sculptures each time the hour glass is turned.

• Hour glass containing iron filings
• Filings create patterns as they drop on to the magnetic bas
