Engineered Sculptures Pt. 2


HE’S BEEN MAKING AND REFINING KEN ETHIC SCULPTURES — KINETIC SCULPTURES FOR YEARS. THESE ARE SO COOL. Reporter: YEAH. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS, YOU JUST CAN’T HELP STOP STARING AT THEM. WE TALK ABOUT OPEN SEASON, AND TOOK A LITTLE DEPARTURE FROM THAT, BUT I LIKE IT, OBVIOUSLY. SO WE SEE THESE BEAUTIFUL PIECES OF ART. TOM IS HERE AND LEGAL TALK TO US HERE AT THE WORK BENCH. HOW DOES THE PROCESS GO? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COME TOGETHER? TAKES ABOUT — WELL, CONSTRUCTION PROBABLY TAKES ABOUT SIX WEEKS, BUT THE ACTUALLY R&D, THE TRIAL ON MY COMPUTER TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WORKS, THAT CAN TAKE MONTHS. SOMETIMES I’LL PIT IT ASIDE AND COME BACK, KIND OF LIKE WRITER’S BLOCK, BUNT THE ACTUAL CONSTRUCTION TAKES ABOUT SIX WEEKS ONCE I DECIDE WHAT I’M GOING TO BUILD. BASIC THROUGH HERE I’M MAKING THE PARTS THAT GO THE SCULPTURES. WHAT YOU SAW MOMENTS AGO WERE COMPLETED SCULPTURES. THOSE ARE MY TEST PATTERNS, THEY’RE READY TO SHIP. BUT WHAT WE SEE ON THE TABLE HERE IS A PROTOTYPE. I’M WORKING ON A SCULPTURE THAT WILL BE DISK OR PEDESTAL MOUNTED. THIS IS THE EARLY PHASE OF THE PRODUCT YOU JUST SAW. YOU SEE HERE WITH LAMINATED BIRCH. I’M MAKING SURE THIS THING WILL SPIN PROPERLY. IT’S BALANCED AND LOOKS RIGHT WITH THE OPPOSING WHEEL. BUT THE PARTSVY HERE ON THE TABLE, I’M JUST INSERTING BEARINGS INTO THE CENTER. I SEAT THE BEARING HERE, AND THEN FROM THERE, I’M INSERTING THE PINS. THESE PINS ARE ALL CUT TO A CERTAIN LENGTH, AND I TAP THEM IN, AND, YOU KNOW, JUST WORKING WITH MY HANDS. I DO SIT 234 FRONT OF A COMPUTER QUITE A BIT. SO TO SIT HERE AND HAVE THE RADIO AND TV GOING, IT’S QUITE A RELAXES JOB FOR ME. AND THEN IT WILL GO INTO — WHAT DID YOU CALL THIS PROCESS IF THIS IS A PROJECT YOU’RE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT, RIGHT? RIGHT. THIS IS A PROTOTYPE SITUATION. THIS WILL HE BE A METAL VERSION SCULPTURE, MUCH LIKE YOU SAW BEFORE SO IT’S GOING TO BE A UNIQUE, DIFFERENT LOOK THAN WHAT MY OTHER CULTURES HAVE, BUT THIS IS MY TESTING STATION TO WORK OUT ON THE BRAINSTORMING I’VE BEEN DOING. SO I CONVINCE TOM TO GIVE US A LITTLE BIT TO HELP Y’ALL OUT WITH CHRISTMAS, RIGHT? YES. ANYONE THAT GOES TO MY WEBSITE, ENGINEEREDSCULPTURES.COM, AND PLACES AN ORDER BEFORE THE END OF DECEMBER, I’LL GIVE A DISCOUNT ON ALL OF MY SCULPTURES.
