Perpetual motion sculpture, modernist kinetic sculpture, in style of Harry Bertoia

  • $46500 CAD

A large perpetual motion sculpture, wire art pendulum or kinetic sound sculpture - very atomic 1960's office decor as the wires just wont stop swaying and the little balls make quite a loud sound when they hit each other. Great as modernist wire sculpture to keep people at a reception area occupied, a library or home office setting. Surprisingly soothing! Consists of 8 tall wires with heavy metal balls mounted on top of a small wood block. The block does move a little when it's brought into motion with any sort of force.
Reminiscent of kinetic sound sculptures by the Danish Laurids Lonborg or the spray sculptures of Italian-American Harry Bertoia. The base looks a lot like the Harry Bertoia's Experimental Conical Wire Form and the attachment of the wire looks identical to other works of his, yet this piece is unsigned.
Condition: good with some slight bending to the wires
(base) 5 x 5-1/4 x 1-3/4 inches
total 32 inches tall
