Pearl's Mobile

Pearlie has asked us to blog about the mobile she has made recently. She’s now working on another one – fish based. Anyway here is her lovely spoon mobile. She conceived, designed and made this entirely independently, including buying the necessary things like wire and spoons. You can't tell from the picture, but each spoon has a glass 'pebble' glued into the bowl. I think this looks like each spoon contains a drop of some magic liquid. Cool, eh?

That is very cool, well done P :)
A friend who used to work in a hospital had a mobile made of hip replacement joints and forks which I always though was very cool.

Thanks, you tow. I'll pass those on to her. I must say I like the idea of a mobile made of hip replacement joints.

I like it :-) I bet it looks great when the light reflects off it.

hmm. I did comment the other day but it obviously got lost in the either!

I remember seeing mobiles years ago - convent garden I think - from old forks, with the pronks bent out and curled and stuff... braclets and stuff too...

this is awesome by the way - would she ever consider selling any of her work?

Grit said...

that is fantastic. and we are going to STEAL that idea!

(in reality, we will get as far as hunting down some suitable spoon candidates from the help the aged shop, we will scatter rocks all over the floor, and be distracted. we will then trip over bent spoons and rocks over the floor for the next two years)

Allie said...

Thanks again, everyone.

She is planning to make some as gists I think, mamacrow. She's really into this mobile making at the moment and planning more.

I really like this :)

My dad used to make a LOT of mobiles when I was growing up. Instead of a light fitting in our living room we had various weird stuff hanging there. He did a lot based on Fibonacci numbers, and then got more complicated later on. One of his last ones was 100+ ping pong balls, hanging from a square frame, on different length threads so they formed part of the surface of a large sphere. Will try to find a photo somewhere.

Anyway, if P ever wants an imaginary friend to talk to about mobiles, I'd recommend him ;-)
