Woody and Pinky, the wind spinners
MakeShift Festival

Woody’s bent ride to the sky 2018

Not a stitch of handmade paper - all bent luan, epoxy resin, spray paint, piping, free spin roller bearings. It's one of 2 spinning sculptures we made for  MakeShift Festival - food with a little art - in Madison's Tenney Park on Sunday August 12, 2018. This one is about 6' high. The one below is 8'.

Pinky, or Streaking and scattering the wind and the sun 2018

The other had some handmade paper (the pink shapes and the yellow and blue & green form), but mostly fiberglass fabric and tinted resin.

We'd show a video, but there was barely a breath of wind. What breezes there were occasionally were defeated by the stiffness of the allegedly free spin roller bearings. Maybe we’ll get to set it up somewhere with a breeze before the parts get lost to inventory.
