We have just obtained a classic David Roy sculpture.  A long closed out edition, Meander is one of David’s favorites from the 1990’s.

Meander ©1995

Sold Out

Meander was the first long running spring-driven sculpture David created. It runs for 10-12 hours on the single winding of a single spring. His previous record was a double spring piece that clocked in at 4-5 hours.

The longer run time is achieved by restricting most of the motion to the two large freeform wheels. The other wheels and belts only come into play when one of the large wheels looses momentum, slows to a stop and requires a new push. A small pawl on the freeform wheels then engages a pin on a pulley and causes the mechanism to propel the wheel forward for another period of revolutions.

The freeform wheels spend most of their time turning in opposite directions at slightly different rates of speed. The motion created between the wheels is graceful and flowing. This is a very quiet, peaceful, meandering sculpture.

This is an unusual offering exclusively from Creations.  Our price is $1200.  shipping within Continental USA included.
