BEAVER LANE STUDIOS - Bob Turan © 2017
Similar to Windsong this work is a variation of the design in a series of sculptures that “dance” with the wind. The kinetic top section rotates with the wind, catching and reflecting the light.
The construction is of welded stainless steel and polished black granite. The stainless “sail” rotates on a stainless steel shaft with ball bearings and moves like a weathervane, in tune with the wind.
The high-strength, stainless steel base is a 3’ by 3’ triangular pyramid. The granite cube is built on a stainless steel frame with an internal shaft that is designed to carry the kinetic forces down to the pad. The work is ten feet tall to the top of the 5’ x 4’ x 3’ sail, and the cube is 12” on each side. Installed on a 4’ x 4’ concrete pad, the kinetic space is about 4’ x 4’ x 10’ and the work weighs approximately 400 lbs.
