This is a kinetic sculpture that simulates a horse during a race
Aluminum with steel base. 21 inches tall by 26 inches wide
This is a much improved sculpture from the previous “Galloping horse” that can be seen
further down the page. After further intensive study of actual horses during races, much
effort was spent in modifying the mechanism to produce a life like and lively action.
Swirl: Steel 20 inches tall
The icosidodecahedron was built with 1/8 inch steel to ensure the flatness of the surfaces. This project was conceived during the record setting hot Seattle summer days in 2009. The original plan was to paint the two arms red orange to simulate the flames of summer with the center icosidodecahedron representing the ‘qi’ swirling around in the heat. I finally decided on a bluish green tinge representing the cooling wind that swirls around and cooling it.
This is the first sculpture I made. The steel round ball was made with 8 pieces of metal and forged into a round shape.
Cyclone: Aluminum 15 inches tall.
This is inspired by witnessing global warming . Every summer, I go boating in my boat. This summer, I went to Barkley sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. For many previous visits, there were plenty of healthy mussels. This year, the mussels beds were strangled by overgrown sea weeds. Global warming? This lead to the natural disaster theme.
Boat: Steel/copper 16 inches tall.
As in Punt.
Wind mobil: Aluminum/ Stainless steel 21 inches diameter.
Reminds me of green energy and wind turbines. The aluminum turbine blades and the center polished stainless steel octahedron can rotate independent of each other.
This sculpture was conceived during Easter weekend in 2010. The name denotes both the physical spiral spring that forms the base, as well as the concept of “renewal” during Spring time. It symbolize the rise of life force.
Celebration: Aluminum, steel and stainless steel 5 ft. 10 inches tall
The two counter-rotating sets of blades invokes the feeling of firework display. The heavy steel base is in the form of a compass rose. The smooth central axle allows movement with the slightest air movement.
Currently on loan, displayed at Shoreline City Hall
Wind powered kinetic sculpture
This piece was inspired when we were preparing for an Egypt river cruise, which unfortunately did not happen due to the revolution in that country.
In the sculpture, there are elements suggestive of the pyramid, Nile river, and river boat.
Egyptian “book of the dead” depicts a heart weighing ritual when the pharoh’s heart is weighted during his passage.
Twinkling stars: Steel and Stainless steel
When placed on a table, the slightest vibration would make the stars twinkle
Bloom: Aluminum and Stainless steel wind kinetic sculpture 80 inches tall.

A recent visit to Tien Moon Dong at Zhangjiajie in China inspired creation of this sculpture. There is a natural rock arch, high up in the mountain with 999 steps leading straight up to the opening beneath the arch. As one ascends the steps, it is like walking up towards the heavens.
The bowel is shaped like a cyclone, which is a low pressure center that has tremendous suction effect. This suction force will concentrate treasures from all around.
For the Year of the Dragon. This captures the spirit of the dragon twisting and soaring towards the sky.
