Local Artisan DALE MATHIS 66 I utilize pistons and gears to create sculptures, furnishings, artwork and clocks that are both aesthetically pleasing and meaningful. Every single moving piece within my structures contributes to the big picture. Take a piece of gear out and its absence will immediately be noticed. Get the measurements off by a couple of millimeters and the entire thing will not work. It is in these small details that people find solace, because life can at times be filled with so many openended and messy stories that it feels nice to be in front of something so organized.
