My kids have heard me say many times that the only reason I would want to become rich for one day is so that I can own a real Calder Mobile. In the meantime, maybe this one will do?
Yes! I have one of those in all-white, hanging in front of an off-white wall and near a window, and it’s glorious when the shadows play at the end of the day when it catches the evening light. It’s made by https://www.voltamobiles.com , in Spain and France, and they have some wonderful variations posted here https://www.instagram.com/volta_mobiles . I did have to get it shipped to somebody in Europe and then hand-carried to NYC, but it was well worth it.
Calder’s work is so full of joy.
