Description"The Lightning Clock sculpture is the work of artist Andy Plant. Made from copper and steel, the clock's design was inspired by the North Wind. On the stroke of every hour, the clock comes to life. A storm rises with sounds of thunder heard from inside the large globe. The globe then opens up, revealing the face of the North Wind, and with eyes rolling the storm rises. The Wind blows out smoke to knock the weatherman of his feet. The storm then dies down and calm weather returns. The Lightning Clock not only tells the time but the dials at the base of the clock give the temperature, wind speed & direction and barometric pressure." Photo by Ken Brown, 2005.
