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 Mystique

 

Mystique is a "patterning" sculpture. Each large patterning wheel is built in two layers using contrasting wood colors. These create double patterns when they are rotated in opposite directions. The dark outer pieces form a rim or frame that constantly forms and collapses. The lighter stained inner spokes create the illusion of shrinking and growing forms as the direction of their rotation is changed.

This is a quiet but not silent mechanism. There is a subdued click as the mechanism levers engage and release small brass pins when the patterning motion changes direction.
