Green Tree Mechanical Theatre
(16″W x 26″H x 8″D) Wood, Metal, Milk Paint
Gently pulling or raising the red pull lifts or lowers the white curtain. The ball chain that links the curtain to the pull runs up and through the stylized green tree onto and over a bearing mounted on a metal cloud. Just to make this piece a bit more difficult to build, I radiused the front and back of the box, so that even the carved curtain had to be curved. The other detail that that I think helps carry the piece is how the tree exits the box through a hole in the top.
