This is the new Gears Table by renowned Los Angeles sculptor Bruce Gray. It is made from 35 industrial gears in steel, brass, and stainless steel. It is 16 1/2” tall with a 2 ft x 4 ft piece of 1/2” thick glass for the top. This stunning and unique coffee table was commissioned, so it is not available, but Bruce will be happy to make you your own Gears Table for $6000.
Bruce says that “It was quite a challenge keeping all the gears on the proper vertical or horizontal plane during the welding process, especially since the gears have almost completely been welded from the underside only, to give it the impression that the gears may actually move and function somehow. This is one of my favorite creations I have ever done. I was expecting to have to do some adjustments to get it perfectly level on all 4 points for the glass, but to my surprise it was exactly right on. I think that anyone who welds and does complex metal fabrication can appreciate that.”
Bruce’s sculptures, paintings and furniture have been exhibited at many museums, in art galleries from coast to coast, in 35 books, and frequently on TV and in movies such as Austin Powers 1 & 2, Sleeping with the Enemy, Gone in 60 Seconds, Starship Troopers, Meet the Fockers, Six Foot Under, How I Met Your Mother, Seinfeld, Friends, Charmed, Entourage, CSI, and Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.
