Seed Tree I Mechanical Theatre
(19”W x 30”H x 6”D) Douglas Fir, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Metal, Pear Tree Branch, Milk Paint
I really like the interchangeability of this piece. All of the handles and tops have their own designated spot in the cabinet where they store when not in use. It is like a circus performance as the parts are moved around. When a handle is spun, the tree turns, which winds the curtain over, exposing either the “engine room” or the owner’s personal display space. Whichever top is mounted over the tree turns as well when the tree is rotated. A lead filled counterweight moves up and down as the curtain moves.
