New Kinetic Art Mobile Sculptures for 2013 by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Designs

I have been blessed with a little time to explore a new (to me) material, copper, and create some original watercolor based and acrylic based mobile sculpture designs.  Here are a few newbies:

Copper Raindrops by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Mobiles
Creating the Copper Raindrops is a whole new challenge for me.  While I have soldered silver in the past I have never braised copper.  New skills with old tools.  



Kite Festival Mobile by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Mobiles
I haven't done a Kite Festival mobile in a couple of years.  I was approached by a viewer of my YouTube videos to create one just for them.  Too much like fun!

My newest child the Asteroids Art Mobile is named after the 70's video game.  It features both horizontal and vertical components for a very interesting movement.  See one in motion here on youtube:  http://youtu.be/gA3--yq1LJc


Namaste Art Mobile by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Mobiles
I've been exploring a different style of watercolor painting for a few of my mobiles.  Here is an example

Circle Play Kinetic Art Mobile by Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Mobiles

Circle Play is another new design.  At only 17 inches tall this one is fantastic for low ceilings!
