Rock’n Rings

There is no message other than… Let’s have some fun, in “Rock’n Rings”.  The balancing act formation is achieved using seven rings that were once part of two piece truck wheels. They are spring steel, which allowed them to snap into place on the wheel to hold the tire in place. That function is now applied to this sculpture enabling it to rock back and forth with a entertaining motion, that the slightest touch will cause. The base is also constructed with salvaged material; portions of the frame of a truck, and part of the floor of a flat bed, one ton, utility truck.
