New Mobile Sculpture
I finished a new kinetic art piece. I really love creating these pieces. This was a commission piece and was sent off to Virginia. It measures approximately 24 inches wide and 32 inches high. I made the piece with steel and copper wire using objects I found. Mostly I found the objects on the shores of Tampa Bay except for the Cherub which I found hanging on my fence.
The left side has a bound shell at the top.
Kind of a top down view.
This was a cool idea. I put an eye bolt in the right side at the top and then just set a bolt in there. The bolt is removable. I added this to balance out the piece so it wold hang with the top being level. So I used different sized bolts until I found one that would balance out the whole piece.
The namesake for the piece is a ceramic Cherub that is bound by copper wire.
Some bound shells and rocks.
