Calder Style Large Mobile Art - Almost double the size of the original Fun Mobile by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Designs - This mobile is made to order with a construction time of 1 to 2 weeks
Approx Measurements - 45" wide x 72" tall - Needs a space at least 50 inches wide to move freely! The small components measure at least 3.5 inches tall and the largest drops are 6" tall and the circles are 6.5 inches.
What a fun mobile for the playroom or nursery. Great for a tall ceiling entryway for a day care center or school. Created with HDPE durable plastic the components are the thickness of one credit card on edge. Stainless Steel wire and a ball bearing swivel make up the materials used to create this fun mobile sculpture.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ART
I quit my full time job January 2013 to create these beauties full time. Each morning I have the great pleasure and joy of creating these great mobiles. I begin by cutting the shapes and then carefully connecting them to the stainless steel wire. Then a perfect balancing act begins while I twist and bend the wire into perfectly balanced sculptures.
Upon completion, I sit back and watch the movement, making sure it flows nicely and is interesting to watch. Each one is made one by one, handmade with quality and love. The wire is stainless steel. They are very well made and should last for many many years and quite probably a lifetime. My influences are Timothy Rose, Bruce Gray and of course the master, Alexander Calder!
