Hi my name is Julie Frith, I am a northern California artist. I create
modern kinetic art sculptures, in the style of Alexander Calder. I have
a great website that I made and maintain. I sell mobiles and stabiles that I make with my husband Brian Ladd; For
more information: www.frithmobiles.com.
All of my creations are made by hand, no mass production, custom
designed made to order. I love modern design, architecture, clean
lines, bright color splashes, and mid century homes. Grew up in the
60's/70's surrounded in constant art of my parents. Learned many art
skills and knowledge of modern design and technology. Impressed by the
mobiles of Calder in museums around the world, it influenced my art love forever.
This is a custom design I did for a client who wanted a mobile hung outside in his courtyard. It is an 8' Multius mobile, that I boosted the size of the stainless steel rods for stability from wind. I also coated the petals with a sunscreen to keep the colors vibrant. My plastic and stainless steel combination will last forever without rusting and is perfect inside or out.
