New Desktops

So here they are. I made these three at the same time, and all have the same birthday, September.

The thing that makes each desktop special is the track. They do have the same frame, track switches, tipping arms, spirals and loop d loops...but the thing connecting all of these is...track. The sculpture can look quite unique if for instance one desktop had long, slight curved, flowing tracks that went around the outside of most of the piece, and the other desktop's track was very twisty with lots of hairpin corners and weaving in and out of the frame supports. They would look very different.

So check these three out and see how different types of track can make the desktop sculptures very individual and one of a kind.

In case anyone is wondering, if you try and watch two of those at the same time, it can kind of make you dizzy. Just sayin'.

I like the idea of changing up the track to vary the design. I've had this on my mind for a while, but have never seen a literal example of it. This would be a fantastic way to ramp up production without producing cookie cutter-type designs, which would ruin the whole thing for me.

Nice work, once again!
