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!

Pulsar Kinetic Sculpture Directions 

About Pulsar


Pulsar is a patterning sculpture with strong visual effects. The two large wheels rotate rapidly in opposite directions. The wheels are weighted so that their rotational speeds vary with each revolution. This creates a constantly changing and pulsing pattern of motion. The patterning wheels are backed by a fabric color panel. This enhances the vivid optical effects. 

Although this sculpture uses the same type of mechanism as my older sculpture Meander, the running time is somewhat shorter because the wheels rotate faster.

I bought the Pulsar and when we moved the springs came apart. Do you have a schematic of the power winding?

I did eventually get the sculpture together and running. However I did find a spot that told about the directions, etc. Is it possible to locate that about Pulsar and send it along again?

It is a beautiful sculpture and will bring many moments of wonderment from our guests.
