#9 of 9 Mobiles Made From the Old Copper Washing Machine Tub


The Last post of the winter mobile run. There are other pieces of sculpture done and coming from the smaller scraps of the washing machine tub but these nine used most of it up.

Still finishing a large (35-40) run of stick couples then on to an aluminum mobile commission job. Always collecting sticks and weathered metal or anything that looks like it may be inspiring material for whatever artwork comes after that!

  2. Your mobiles are amazing! Very Calder-esque (I’m really hoping you like Calder’s work and take that as a compliment) šŸ˜€

    • It turns out that as a teen one of the places I worked had an amazing Calder collection. Over the years there were many times we worked around them. I often moved them and hung them and have had the opportunity to gently “play” with quite a few. His sculpture and painting combined with a job I loved totally awakened the artist in me. Out of respect for the privacy of my friends I do not give many details but, the story is coming out bit by bit in some of my blog posts.
