Amazing!!!! It was even prettier and bigger in person, it. Was really well packed, however the post office didn't really read the fragile label, box was a bit bit up, and the wires got a really bent, however I was able to bend them back in place. Over all really happy w product and customer service!

Fantastic Mobile. Excellently packaged, received no damage during transit. Once hung it was perfectly balanced, and moves very slowly all the time, just as it should. The movement is absolutely hypnotizing. Also, I have orange, green,and yellow spots creepily dancing all over my walls and carpet as mine is hung under a three light halogen fixture with the lights set at different angles. Can't go wrong with this model! Thanks, Marco...!!!

Is it difficult to install one of your mobiles?
Not at all. All mobiles (unless it’s a large custom mobile) ship completely assembled. So all you have to do is:
1. Open the box
2. Screw the hook that comes with the mobile into the ceiling
3. Remove the protective materials from the mobile
4. Tie the transparent nylon string that’s attached to the mobile to the hook
Can your hanging mobiles be adjusted to fit my ceiling height?
The mobiles ship with a generous amount of line attached to it. You can tie that line to the ceiling hook at whatever length you think works best for you.
Do I need to balance the mobile when hanging it for the first time?
No, all mobiles ship fully balanced and ready to hang.
Are any of your mobiles suitable for outdoors?
Most of them are not as is but I can adjust many of them so they can withstand extreme weather (I know about one of my mobiles having survived hurricane Irene just fine!). Please contact me if you’re considering a mobile for outdoors. I'll be happy to make the necessary adjustments.
How much do your hanging mobiles weigh?
The ready-to-ship ones in the shop weigh around 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 – 1 kg). A large custom mobile, let’s say 10 feet (3 meters) in size weighs around 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 7 kilograms), depending on details. Anything larger than 10 feet (4.5 meter) really depends on the design and the materials used. The really large hanging mobiles or kinetic art installations can be made rather light by using hollow tubing and hollow panels instead of steel rods and sheet metal.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, I do.
Can you make a copy / replica / reproduction of an Alexander Calder mobile for me?
I could but that would be illegal. All of his works are copyrighted. Besides I’m proud of having developed my own original style of mobiles. If you are looking for an original Calder mobile for sale, I suggest you keep an eye out for them at auction houses such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s, but be prepared to pay between US$ 200’000 and US$ 6.3 Million for one.
