Sculptural Mechanical Clock - Grasshopper variation
« on: October 02, 2012, 10:48:22 PM »
Hi Folks, thought you all might be interested in a recent project. Runs 30 hours, common pivot grashopper, double ended pendulum beats 2 seconds or there abouts, since I'm cheating with a quartz movement it doesn't matter anyway.  Project was to illustrate the Grasshopper primarily.

Cheers

That's a nice clock!  I assume that the gears are acrylic or is it some other plastic?   The grasshopper is my favorite escapement, it's just so much fun to watch.

Yes, What a wonderful piece of art I would say simply that  wonderful. The style is excellent, the completed time is outstanding. That video is very creative as well.
