On Conjuring | New Wooden + Metal Midcentury Modern Mobile | Mark Leary Designs


“Are you sure you’re doing it right?” she asked.
“I have no idea,” I responded.
And we both laughed then,
because we knew it really didn’t matter.

Mobile: The Conjuring
Size: Approx. 16” wide x 23” tall
Material: Sheet metal + backyard harvested live-edge laurel wood, gently shaped + dry finished

Thoughts while making: I lit some Nag Champa as I made this mobile. Partly to get rid of the lingering smell of burnt brussel sprouts. Mostly because this mobile is headed to #Virginia


 I was still a kid, really. Living on the ocean in Seal Beach, CA. She rolled in like a wave. Changed everything. Packed up my ‘86 Honda Civic hatchback, and moved to Harrisonburg, VA, where I proceeded to eat a lot of #Velveeta and write truly awful poetry. 

Incense seemed ever present. And while the universe had different ideas for what that relationship would become, the smell of #NagChampa will always conjure up a rich feeling of possibility … and fabulously smelly hippies.
