The traditional whirligig is an epitome of folk art. My work is a contemporary reinterpretation of this uniquely American art form. Crafted from wood and natural materials, these kinetic wind sculptures retain the whimsy of the original whirligigs. Each sculpture transforms the mechanical motion of camshaft and cam into unexpectedly movement. All my work, including newer kinetic and automata pieces, strive to reveal the basic forces of nature (light, gravity, balance, motion, magnetism).
