Quartz No.5 by ericfreitas Quartz No.5 by ericfreitas
This is the most elaborate of all the motorized pieces I've done thus far. There was a lot of metal to cut, and the dial was more involved. The screws around the rim of the dial are so tightly inlaid that before I varied the color, they blended right in. In addition, I disassembled the motor and replaced the center pin with a nice solid brass one. This allowed me to more securely fasten the long custom hands I like to use.

Everything is cut from thick plate, and then carved with a rotary tool.

It's not often that you do creation in long instead of in height. Really great :)
