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 Tranquility

 

Tranquility is a long running sculpture that is very easy to live with. It has a peaceful, meandering motion that is calming to watch. The evolving patterns of the upper wheels change from breaking waves to the Yin Yang symbol with all sorts of variations in between. Your eye peacefully rolls along with the sculpture as it performs its routines. 

The rear spiral (closest to the wall) carries the front one and causes it to rotate. I've used a new type of spring/ratchet mechanism to insure a smooth transfer of motion from one wheel to the other. The rear spiral eventually loses momentum and "falls" backward triggering the drive mechanism to give the whole assembly another push.
