One Eternal Round

Viewer Project - By Karl Hale ( from Mapleton, Utah
Added on July 30, 2015

I am a kinetic sculptor and a lover of wood. To create One Eternal Round, I used every tool in my shop including the lathe, scroll saw, CNC, rotary tools, plus of course, table saw, joiner, planer, and various sanders.

I used black walnut, oak, and ash which I harvested myself plus maple burl and snake wood.

I was interested in exploring circular motion in all its beautiful complexity. In this sculpture, the marbles move and the wood is shaped in circles within circles, vertically, horizontally, concentrically, and randomly.

Because still photos don’t capture the kinetic nature of my sculpture, I’ve put together a video.

Also, I have more details on my Facebook page at
