Approx Measurements - 32" wide x 26" tall - Needs a space at lest 34 inches wide to move freely! The components measure 3.5" to 4.5" at their widest points.
CONSTRUCTION: The components are created with a flexible plastic material about the thickness of a credit card. Extremely light, cleaning friendly, and made to last and last. This sculpture was made with lightweight materials so it moves in the soft air currents of your home if placed in the same room with an air conditioning vent or fan . But, like a fine sculpture, it should not be kept in direct sunlight, in water or within reach of a sweet baby's hands.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ART
I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get into my studio! Yes, its true! As of 01/11/2013 I now create these sculptures full time. I am the luckiest person on earth! It is sheer joy that drives me to create these beautiful sculptures! For each sculpture I begin by cutting the shapes and then carefully connect 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!
Thanks to the Mississippi Arts Commission for making the continuation of my work and progression of my artistic development flourish with their approval of a a number of mini-grants since 2010! I am very grateful!
