Check This Out: A Corporate Employee Left Her Job To Paint 24-Hour Clocks

This is proof that we are the masters of our own time


Have you ever thought about quitting a job that pays to pursue your passion? For most of us, we would choose to be practical but a few are brave enough to take a leap of faith. 

Having been interested in the beauty and intricate detail of medieval towers since she was young, Agatha decided to drop her 8-to-5 shift to spend hours in her garage creating 24-hour clocks. 

She applies a million coats of tempera mixtures, cuts, bends, grinds and has even started to learn a few engineering tricks—proving that she can learn anything she sets her mind to.

People have described her work as unreal because of the unique depth of colors and the way it catches light. Since gaining a following, Agatha has opened Agutta—an online shop of sorts—where she is able to sell a few commissioned pieces.
