Wire Mobiles . com

Welcome to the whimsical world of wire mobiles and kinetic sculptures. Something happened after hopping in a Florida car rental and relocating to the Northwest. A metalsmithing class at the University of Oregon in Eugene introduced Robert Harrison to wire sculpture. From there he began his sculptured mobile art. Robert's mobiles suggest a variety of subjects from abstract to comical to human faces with "thoughts" in their heads, to our solar system.

Alexander Calder first popularized mobiles beginning in the 1920's and continued to create them all the way up to the 1970's. On average he created one piece of artwork everyday for 50 years. In fact, Calder created more than 16,000 items. The main body of his work was mobiles, stabiles, paintings, sculptures and jewelry.
