New Tabletop Stabiles by Mark Leary

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!

Just in time for the holidays (and Black Friday / Small Business Saturday) I've just finished a set of 10 tabletop stabiles. They're all headed to Acme Mid-Century + Modern in Alexandria, VA.

These one-of-a-kind lil' spinners don't take up much space and offer a cool way to add some artful move into your daily groove. Uh, yes, I just said that.

I had a bunch of fun creating the very minimalistic and organic-inspired bases for each of these mobiles. 

Primarily, the relationship between the bases and the mobile itself works on counterbalance and thus don't seem like they should support the movement of the blades - but they do. 

From Calder forward, I've not seen other similar designs - usually they're much more "substantive" in appearance. I am excited to keep playing with this more minimalistic approach and see where it evolves. 

Stop in to Acme or contact Pierre to reserve your original stabile before they sell out.

Have an awesome holiday!
