Art Mobile - Black White Red Zen Style by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Designs - See the Shipping and Policies tab for construction time. This is great for anyone with lower ceilings. From hook to bottom of mobile is only 13 inches! Made to order - Ships in approx 3 to 5 business days
Approx Measurements - 27" wide x 13" tall - Needs a space at lest 30 inches wide to move freely! The components are the thickness of two credit cards on edge to keep the sculpture light and moving in very soft air currents. (There must be some air flow in a room for a mobile to move).
The components are created with an acrylic molded plastic material. Extremely light to keep it moving in virtually no air currents, cleaning friendly, and made to last and last. Like a fine sculpture, it should not be kept in direct sunlight or within reach of a sweet baby's hands. Individual components range in size from 1.5" to 3" wide.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ART
I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get into my studio! 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 mini-grant in 2010 and 2011! I am very grateful!
