Atomic Compass is a new variation on the compass them I have been working on for a few years now. As with all of my sculptures, I utilize magnetic suspension to keep the pieces afloat.
To truly appreciate this piece, you should check it out in action. It is truly memorizing.
Here is a link:
The compass is made from walnut, Purple Heart and maple woods. The frame is bent maple, and the base is made with walnut.
There is a 2” magnetic gap between the compass and the attracting pendent.
This compass is rarely still. It twists and turns, while floating in space, with the slightest provocation (wind, earthquakes, your breath you, and my favorite- a nudge..).
The compass, is 14 inches wide. the stand is 20 inches high and 1 inch wide.
Thanks for looking!
Any and all feedback is appreciated. Without feedback, it is hard to push the limits.
