We received our Sunflower color scheme mobile yesterday and hung it in our nursery the very same day. It looks great and will no doubt be a cherished feature in our son's room for years to come.

About

Moon Lily Silk Mobiles

I've been making these mobiles by hand in my Colorado studio for over 16 years. The first leaf mobile was inspired by the shadows of tree branches outside my window on an interior wall. Having just worked to earn my MFA, I was teaching myself to make mobiles just for fun, and was compelled by the logic of the imagery.

I plant one tree for every mobile sold through American Forests' Global ReLeaf program. I think it's important to offset any damage my business makes to the planet.

My mobiles are created by hand from silk fabric and fine gauge stainless steel wire. As far as I know, no other mobile sculptor uses starched silk in their artwork. Many of the colors are dyed by hand in small vats. I enjoy the meticulous process that goes into making each one--there's something about the repetition of production that gives me a great sense of satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Just like any decorative object, your mobile should be dusted occasionally. It's easiest to take the mobile down, lay it flat on a table, and gently brush the upper side of the leaves with an artist’s brush or soft terry cloth. Take care not to crease the leaves, and wipe in the same direction as the leaf wire.

Mobile Placement

My mobiles are best suited for interior locations, and are not intended for outdoor use. They will retain their beauty indefinitely if placed properly and treated with care. Avoid placement under an air vent or anywhere that updrafts are common, or in areas with high humidity.

No Assembly Required

Each mobile arrives ready to suspend and includes about five feet of nylon line. All that's required is a small cup hook or screw eye for the ceiling insertion point.
