This sculpture was made from one thrown disc, which was cut into rings, which were then carefully bent.  I made it quite a long time ago, but left the pieces separate.  I like to have them all on a table and set them all to rocking at once, if possible. Being of differing sizes, they were always stopping and had to be restarted- kind of fun!  But for a change, this spring I decided to fasten them together using fishing swivels secured by black coated wire. They can all be easily turned other directions, but I was interested to find out that when the piece is hanging where the wind moves it slightly, the natural position is perfectly lined up in the same direction.
