Barnum's Dream by Ed Ross

Have you met someone interesting recently in a totally unexpected way? I did. A customer came to pick up a recently completed Frolic kinetic sculpture that he had ordered from me. He brought along his friend because he thought he would be interested in my work and workshop. Through visiting, I learned that this friend, Ed Ross has crafted some incredible kinetic work of his own. Inspired by the Steampunk world, he built this magnificent sculptural ship call Barnum's Dream.



Ed blogged extensivly about the construction process on his blog here. I have no idea how long it took to create. The blog starts in 2010 and things seemed to be in progress at that point. Ed also created a video filled with whimsy as well as detail about the trial run of this incredible sculpture. Check this out.
