Mobiles and Stabiles by Julie Frith

Julie Frith is best known for her kinetic art mobile sculptures. She grew up in an artistic household in Champaign-Urbana, IL. Her father, Donald Frith, was a professor of Ceramics 40yrs. (and a jeweler) at the University of Illinois; her mother, Barbara Frith, a painter and sculptor. Julie’s parents instilled in her an appreciation of art and artistic design, and they encouraged their daughter to pursue her own artistic interests through college and as a professional designer.
Influenced by the work of Alexander Calder, Julie began making mobiles for fun. It didn’t take long before what she enjoyed doing turned into a profession, and in 1998 she started selling her own unique line of mobile sculptures. Where Calder had used metals and paint, Julie chose to make her mobiles of polished plastics and stainless steel. Her pieces sprang from ideas like making modern art for children that would last from infancy through adulthood.
Julie created the first online custom-colored mobiles and stabiles, where buyers could pick colors to match their décor. Gallery buyers, interior designers and architects were able to easily display available options to their clients. She and her husband, Brian Ladd, began making and selling mobiles around the world.
Clients have included Disney, Paramount Studios, Universal Pictures, Fox TV network, Design Craftsmen, Kids II, Calvin Klein, Starbucks and the Hard Rock Hotel. Julie’s mobiles have appeared on television, in movies, in major magazines like Architectural Digest and on the covers of college textbooks. Her sculptures have been used as awards in ceremonial presentations to architects and other designers.

    Inspired by Alexander Calder and my (artist) parents, I have been making mobiles since I was a kid. I've created mobiles for large clients and small: from museums and corporations to movies and magazines, homes to beautifully designed baby nurseries.
