Wind Vanes and Sculptures

Wind sculptures are an engaging addition to public parks and private gardens. The vanes can have either a fun and whimsical theme or can have a more serious sculptural quality.

Approx 1.7 metres horizontally  from tip to tip in the lower photo. Approx 1.2 metres high. Largest sphere 100mm diameter. The two photographs are of the same mobile in different poses.

Windvanes for a playground in a Birmingham Nursery School. Commissioned by Birmingham City Council as part of their "Young at Art" programme. Each column carries a vane mounted on low maintenance polymer bearings - the heavy balls on the end of the vanes give a pendulum effect that encourages them to swing "through" the wind and then try to correct themselves thus exaggerating the effect of the wind through constant movement.
