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 Zephyr

 

Zephyr is the first freestanding sculpture I've designed and produced in several years. It's always a challenge to get "off the wall" and design something that can be viewed from all angles.

The drive mechanism and motion of this sculpture are quite simple. The arms move up and down in opposite directions. They pull on strings attached to the common axle of the upper spoked wheels. These wheels turn together several revolutions in one direction and then reverse. The basic mechanism is quite simple but the patterning created by looking through the double wheels is complex and variable. It changes with each shift in angle you view the sculpture from.
