Hand Made Kinetic Wave Sculpture Made From Wood

This is a Kinetic wave sculpture made from mostly all wood. Each wave is driven by a cam that moves the wave both horizontally and vertically.

There are 3 different type of fish, most of which don`t actually jump out of the water, but I like the look of them. Originally it was going to run only off a motor, but I don’t like the noise so I made the motor box optional.

As usual the gear template was created with Matthias Wandel’s excellet gear generator software. The sculpture features a little boat floating upon a bumpy sea.


Three different types of fish appear to jump out of the waves as they rise and fall, both horizontally and vertically. The sculpture is hand-cranked, although a motor can be made available.
