Mobiles: Alexander Calder, Leah Pellegrini and DIY

Alexander Calder (1898-1976), whose illustrious career spanned much of the twentieth century, is the most acclaimed and influential sculptor of our time. Born into a family of classically trained artists, Calder utilized his innovative genius to change the course of modern art.  He began by developing a new method of sculpting: by bending and twisting wire, he essentially "drew" three-dimensional figures in space.  He is renowned for the invention of the mobile, whose suspended abstract elements move and balance in changing harmony.  Because of Calder's designs, the mobile became a common element in mid-century decorating.


I recently discovered a glass artist named Leah Pellegrini on etsy.com who does Calder-like mobiles in several sizes.  She offers a mini-size for $25, a large size for $610 and several sizes in between, making her work affordable for everyone.  I bought one of her small mobiles, which just arrived yesterday.  It is a beautiful piece, and now I want one of her larger ones.
