Metal vs Plastic Mobiles

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
