Arts & Design: Atlanta Maker Alliene Bouchard

Craft & Design

Twist this ring on your finger and two other gears will spin up. The “brass cast triple-gear kinetic ring” is just one of many incredible interactive pieces by Bouchard, who is interviewed by James Floyd Kelly on Make. Bouchard also shows us his layered rotating Lotus Table with expanding petals, his sand-filled mechanical Zen garden that rotates to create patterns, and other kinetic masterpieces. His work completely blurs the lines between make, craft, and art.
