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 Soaring


Soaring is a large sculpture composed of two "bird" forms performing an intricate dance of swoops and glides. One bird soars through a large six-foot diameter circle at various speeds while the other proscribes a random pattern of ellipses within the larger circle. Elegantly elongated forms create visual poetry of spacious movement played out over time. The dance is constantly changing but remains fluid and stately throughout. 

The motion in Soaring is driven by a double constant force spring mechanism that uses two winding wheels and a system of pulleys to deliver the energy to the small random escapement mechanism. Like many of my longer running sculptures this piece only gets a "push" when it runs out of energy and needs one.
