The Founders

Hi! We are Clark and Steel, a UK based design studio embarking on a journey to tell the time in new ways. Our team consists of two people: James Clark and Iliana Pavlova.

James was raised on a steady diet of screwdrivers and electronics. A strong interest in kinetic sculpture and practical uses of technology led him to the crossing point of the two; clocks. And with a degree in Computer Visualisation, Iliana comes from a background in computer modelling, design, and games.

We have 12 years of combined experience as software engineers in industry, but our passion has always been designing contraptions. From tiny plastic pipe organs to coffee machines controlled by floppy disks. Our art and hardware have been displayed at events and festivals in London and Croatia.
