Cloud Break Mechanical Theatre
(25″W x 30″H x 7″D) Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Metal, Milk Paint
One of the most complicated pieces I have built, Cloud Break employs wooden gears, wooden rack and pinion gearing, and a cage gear. When the handles are pulled the clouds split apart moving the curtains on the display boxes. The bird on the top spins around and becomes either mostly white, or mostly black.
