Sorry, this item sold. Have SkysetterMobiles make something just for you, or try these other items:
Approx Measurements - 38" wide x 26" tall - Needs a space at least 40 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.
Each one of Skysetter Designs mobiles are unique creations. But, just like a fine painting or sculpture, this mobile is not a toy and is created as a visual piece of artwork which should be cared for accordingly. They should never be kept in a high moisture area or in direct sunlight.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ART
I can't wait to get out the door of my full time job! Each evening I have the great pleasure and joy of creating these great mobiles. I begin by creating an original watercolor painting. With brush in hand I begin to develop its look and what configuration I will use. I then permanently adhere the painting to sheet aluminum, cut and seal with polyurethane. Then comes the fun part! I attach each component to a wire, loop and perfectly balance it, checking the movement for interest the whole time. 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!
CUSTOM ORDERS GRATEFULLY WELCOMED :-) NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE for custom color orders! Really! I love this work so much that it would be a shame to charge you more for doing what I love! Just choose a style and we can talk about your color scheme :-)
