All the mobiles are based on the designs in the 2014 calendar “The Earth And All In It Are The LORD’s”. I am struck by the great variety of forms and patterns that exist in nature. To say that God has something to do with this is a huge understatement.
Thick paper (0.31mm thickness) was used to create all the solids in this collection except for the A7 nativity which required a thinner paper (0.14mm thickness).
All the solids were made from A5 paper. After I made this large mobile I felt it was a bit too ‘busy’. So I began to experiment with smaller sets. (See below.)
The twelve flowers are loosely connected to the twelve months. (The paper size ranges from A5 to A3.) I may base a desk calendar on this design.
The dorsal and ventral surfaces provide an interesting contrast. (The paper size ranges from A6 to A2.)
The Limpets mobile was presented to my dear wife.
The Sea Urchins mobile was presented to my dear daughter. (The paper size ranges from just under A6 to A3.)
The late Kenneth Rowntree was Professor of Fine Art at Newcastle University in the U.K.. The copyright is presumed to belong to the late professor’s estate. The mobile was presented to my dear father. (The paper size is A5, I think.)
This last mobile takes pride of place in our church’s fellowship room. (The paper size ranges from A7 to A3.)
