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.
Hi I am trying metal petals and actually liking the easiness of cutting the shapes. For years, I thought cutting metal would mean you need a blow torch, goggles and heavy shears. But I got thin aluminum, which holds its firmness quite well, I was surprised! So here are a few new pieces I did with aluminum sheet metal. A new stabile I just love called "Alloyd" how it is a combination (or mixture of alloyed and Frank Lloyd!) of plastic and metals. The sturdy solid plastic colored base can be colorized and is fun to look at the color possibilities. I wanted to keep the petals a brushed metal to reflect light and flutter in the wind. Let me know what you think. For more info: Mobiles by Julie Frith
