Mobile Art- READY TO SHIP by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Designs - Classic Style - Ships next business day
THIS WOULD LOOK FANTASTIC IN YOUR MODERN HOME!
Approx Measurements - 32" wide x 22" tall - Needs a space at lest 35 inches wide to move freely! The components are the thickness of one credit card on edge to keep the sculpture light and moving in very soft air currents. Components range in size from 2.5" to 5" at their widest point.
CONSTRUCTION - Constructed with original acrylic paintings on 100% cotton rag watercolor paper. Three sheets of the watercolor paper are bonded together through a vise press system with acrylic polymers, pressing the polymers into the paper to make it rigid and durable. The components are sealed with a UVLS polymer sealer to ensure this mobile sculpture will last for decades if not centuries. This construction process was developed to keep the mobile lightweight and moving in the softest air currents while maintaining a high quality construction.
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. 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!
