Hey you guys,
I’m working on a clock for Braun that was designed to be made of cut granite and pumous, preferably of a single piece. My issue is that, when I ran it by a professor, there was question over the feasibility of of using stone for mass manufacturing because of inconsistencies in the material (the possibility of air pockets, etc.).
My questions is, is there a production material with similar tactile qualities to granite and pumous (surface inconsistency, high rate of heat transfer)? One suggestion was ground stone but I’m not sure how good of a fit that is.
