Our hanging metal mobiles can complement a traditional or contemporary space.
The mobiles are finished in one of two ways: One method is to "heat-treat" the metal. By heating and rapidly cooling the metal we are able to bring out the deep reds, purples, blues and greens in the Copper.
The other technique we perform is to "hand-texture" the metals with a disk grinder...lightly cutting a pattern into the metal surface to create a highly reflective brushed surface. Both finishes are clear-coated with lacquer. Each mobile is signed and dated by the artist Joel Hotchkiss and is then carefully packed for shipping.
Alexander Calder made the mobile art form popular and was inspired by Joan Miro using bright, bold colors during the Mid Century Modern or Retro period of the 20th century. Now contemporary mobiles are used in a wide range of interior design venues.
