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.
Large mobiles fill empty spaces with movement and art. This type of art is light in weight and easy to hang, no assembly needed. Mobiles are relaxing to watch move, so if you are designing; say a skylight in a waiting room, this would be the perfect thing to add. Neater than magazines and cleaner than an aquarium! Hang a mobile above a stairwell, as you walk down the stairs the petals float above you... just don't trip with as you are messmerized by the mobile!!! They capture your attention and will cause you to relax and smile. So think of adding a mobile to your next room design. http://www.humboldt1.com/~mobiles/
Steel and Petals mobile by Julie Frith is a beatiful example of a Calder "styled" mobile. It definitely is NOT a Calder, but has the artistic look and flavor of a Calder. The plastic petals remind me of organic shapes, like tree branches in the wind. This mobile turns moving separately the arms one after the other.

"Can you give me a hand out? I need some bread, man".
Should we eat the art, or just look at it? Eat what you are, you are what you eat? These are just some fun ideas I got in an email, don't know who did them if you do let us all know, but they are very creative. Thought I'd share.
