About This Portfolio

This is a listing of all the kinetic sculptures I have created since 1975. It is an archive of historical and current work. Most of these are no longer available for purchase because they were created in limited editions. Go to the Current Works page to see sculptures still available for purchase.

You will find photographs, possibly videos, and much more information on many of the sculptures by clicking on the "Click to read more..." link. I have limited information on many of the sculptures from the early years. They were created before video cameras!

About Crescent

 

Sometimes simplicity creates the most interesting and relaxing motion. In this piece I've started with two simple circles. I mounted and balanced them so that their center of balance is very near the rim. The mechanism pushes these offset wheels in opposite directions at varying rates of speed creating a changing pattern of motion and a "flash" as they overlay exactly.

Crescent makes a very quiet clicking sound as the small pawl on each wheel falls against a brass pin. The sound is part of the general ambiance the sculpture creates.
