Copper Anniversary Mobile

copper wire mobile anniversary gift
One of the traditional gifts for the 7th wedding anniversary is copper, so I made this mobile out of copper wire for Art. The ribbon is 1/4" wide which will give you a sense of size.

 I was inspired by Alexander Calder's wire sculptures and mobiles and by Pablo Picasso's line drawings.

It was fun to think of different shapes and variations and watch the project evolve. This was my first wire sculpture and first mobile; I learned a lot about both and was pleased with the result!

Happy Anniversary, Sweetie!
