One day…

Alexander CalderAlexander Calder Stabile

Owning a real Calder Mobile or Stabile has been one of my life dreams ever since I can remember. Nothing makes me stop and wonder like his kinetic sculptures made with delicately balanced or suspended components. A girl can dream…

  1. Oops, we have the same dream…

  2. Until then an affordable alternative are these lovelies by Cornell Physicist and Artist Werner Sun:

  3. I know exactly how you feel, so I can share; I drove with a friend who is an independent art dealer, who was going to collect a package from a gallery in NYC. It was a long box that we had to fit into the estate wagon. I helped him carry it up to his place and we leaned it against a wall. He said he was going to hang it later as he was going to show it to some buyers.
    I presumed it was a painting. Until he asked if I would like to help and of course I said yes.
    To my surprise, as we opened the carefully wrapped box, it was no painting. It was a Calder mobile.

    After we hung it, I sat/stretched out on his couch for many minutes admiring it, knowing that I was doing something that many people do not get the opportunity to do. Have never forgotten that day.
