I have been a member on and off but am new to this forum and look forward to the interplay. I've recently moved, just got the heat and power in with a view of the bay and am excited to get (re)started.
I fabricate closed form, human scale objects in aluminum, brass and/or stainless steel.
I also make mobiles of aluminum of various scale.

Steven - Welcome (back!), and I hope you find the time to participate more. You’ll find this is an active, friendly group.
It's amazing to see how light your mobiles are. A good solution. What kind of hardware do you use for connectors between the different elements? For some reason I only could see the mobiles - the sculpture button did nothing (I'm sure it's just my finicky computer), but that's probably just because it's late (1:30 a.m.) and the darned thing wants me to go to bed. I'll try again later.

Hi, I especially like "Ankh", "Spirit Eye" and "Split Comet". The others are all very well done too, but those 3 really appealed to me. Wow, your mobiles are very light in weight. I've never made a mobile myself but every once in a while I think about trying one. Maybe some day.
Welcome to this web site. It has a wonderful group of sincere, dedicated, and passionate sculptors here. Everyone from beginners to quite advanced and knowledgeable pro's. Although we don't all agree on stuff, sculptural, everyone seems quite willing to share whatever knowledge they have with one another in a spirit of mutual respect.
Have a nice day,

Thank you for your kind words. The mobile element connections are turned out of 308 s.s. tig rod. I try to keep the elements as light as possible to 'encourage' motion.

Steven - I have to admit I didn't look at your website yesterday, but I did today, and I'm most impressed with the mobile pieces. Especially the repetitiveness with variation.

Welcome, Steven. Nice, clean work. I wish I could see the mobiles in motion.

Welcome aboard from New England.
Your mobiles are something. A far cry from Calder.
I know how hard it is to balance these things so I can appreciate your efforts even more.
I especially like what you did with the three Betas. My wife just said it looks like they're in water.
By the way, some of the photos don't enlarge. Unless this is intentional I would like to see an enlargement of the Bansai.
