Mechanics and motion have always fascinated kinetic sculptor David C. Roy. Roy studied physics, engineering and chemistry at Boston University and graduated with a degree in physics in 1974. His intuitive understanding of motion and mechanics combined with the artistic influences of his wife, Marji, led Roy to the creation of kinetic sculptures. In 1975 the couple started “Wood That Works” and he became a full time sculptor. Since that time, Roy has exhibited in numerous juried, invitational and group events. His work is displayed in galleries and private collections around the world.
“Each of Roy’s kinetic sculptures is a wooden machine powered by a constant force spring which must be wound. While visually interesting sculptures when still, they become truly fascinating when in motion. After a simple winding they entertain with motion and soft sounds for hours.”
Roy currently lives and works in Ashford, Connecticut. To see more of Roy’s work visit WoodThatWorks.com.
