Circus Birds Treasure Box Mechanical Theatre
(10″W x 10″H x 5″D) Metal, Wood, Milk Paint
This small piece has cut out and nailed on metal folk art embellishments. When the center dial is pushed up and down the curtains raise and lower.
Circus Birds Treasure Box was made for the 10th Anniversary Portland Open Studios Show at Portland City Hall in March, 2010. The criteria was that it had to fit in a three dimensional 10″ square space. Instead of using the usual weighted pulls which would have violated the space requirements I used a sliding mechanism to lift the curtains.
