This was one of my first kinetic pieces, built while I was an undergraduate at the Kansas City Art Institute.  The carved wooden jaws snap open and shut as the piece rolls across the floor.  This sculpture was purchased by the American Compressed Steel corporation for winning their art from salvaged materials competition.

Materials:

Pine planks,  steel, chain, rope, pulley, fork lift wheel.
