Art Stories 3 Calder Whimsy
I was in Art School in the second half of the 70's, and running across Alexander "Sandy" Calder was like a breath of fresh air for me.  The possibility that sculpture could be fun was not common among the many sculptors that I was coming in contact with.  This piece developed over several years, with the four elements, the foam piece, the very thin wire, the counter-weights and the base all finding their way teach other slowly, until it seemed just right.  Base 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"  total height 9"
