New pieces added to portfolio

New pieces added to portfolio

I just added four new pieces to my portfolio section.  Heres a preview:

The_Fountain_of_Loeuf_web - 1 The_Fountain_of_Loeuf_web - 4

The Fountain of L’oeuf

(44” x 20” x 20”)

It seems a large proportion of my work is finding solutions for problems that don’t exist.  In this case, I felt it was necessary to power six mechanical egg beaters with one crank.  It took some doing, but problem solved (L’oeuf is french for “the egg” by the way).

Materials:
Egg beaters, flex shafts, right angle gear boxes, brace drill, gears, aluminum, stainless steel.

 

Ohmigod_web - 1 Ohmigod_web - 3

Ohmigod

(10” x 8” x 8”)

The eyes are vintage vacuum tubes (called Nixie tubes) displaying the symbols for Ohms and Volts.  Rotated at an angle and cycled back and forth, and they resemble blinking eyes.

Materials:

Nixie tubes, electrical meters, aluminum, motor, LEDs

Metro-Gnome_web - 1 Metro-Gnome_web - 3

Metro-Gnome

13” x 23” x 6”

Oxygen flow meters painstakingly converted to mechanical solenoid power provide the eyes for this piece.  The brass face plate was textured by hand with a process known as engine turning.

Materials:

Clock, oxygen flow gauges, panel meter, brass, projector lenses, solenoids, LEDs

Clear_Transmission_web - 1 Clear_Transmission_web - 3

Clear Transmission

9” x 7” x 3”

Materials:

Motorcycle brake assembly, digit counter, gears, motor, acrylic
