This is "Wheel of Fortune". There are small bits of clay inside the revolving wheel, which jingle. In my more pessimistic moments I feel the bits of clay are a metaphor for humanity- trapped in an unknowable situation, subject to unknowable events and conditions. Of course this is too extreme; we do have some choices and can affect our situation, within this unknowable setting. Anyway, this sculpture is actually a fun piece; people like to give the wheel a gentle turn and listen to the sound. The base is of birch wood.
