Inspired by the delicate beauty of the leaves of the gingko biloba tree aka Maidenhair tree, this kinetic sculpture is beguiling in its simplicity. The shapes are cut from brass sheet and the edges softened and shaped. Every mobile is carefully assembled with brass wire and balanced by hand. When animated by air currents the mobile dances in a pattern of elegant motion through its articulated design. They are designed to be equally pleasing to behold when motionless and are born from the principles of sacred geometry and equilibrium. Can be hung from an invisible monofilament to enhance the perception that it floats on air.
Mobiles come with a bright warm gold color and satin sheen, and will develop a natural patina over time. To keep your sculpture bright, you may use a brass cleaner like Brasso from time to time. They can be enjoyed outdoors or inside, though exposure to the elements will speed the evolution of a patina. SIZE: approx. 16" w 16" d x 24" h

Forged and cut brass items have a "living finish" meaning they are unsealed, allowing them to develop a unique patina over time. If you wish to maintain the original bright finish, you can use a jewelry polishing cloth to clean from time to time. I recommend one like Fabulustre. If you've let the patina develop but want to quickly bring it back to original brightness, a product like Brasso (found in most hardware stores and some grocers) works very well and is very fast and inexpensive.
Gold-filled is minimum 5% fine metal cladding over base metal and does not de-laminate or peel like plated or "dipped" products. Nor does it tarnish as readily as silver. Many owners find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water. Hot weather and water will not damage the material.
Generally speaking, gold filled is better quality and will have a much longer lasting color than plated jewelry which contains only a scant fraction of gold comparatively.
