I thought the hanging mobiles would be my favorite works but I was blown
away with the simple wire sculptures...especially the facial ones of his
friends. They are so lifelike and you can "see" the 3-D face forms made by
one continuous wire line. They are so "life-like". You can blow on them and
make them move around very slowly and that gives it a feeling of not only
shape but form. I was amazed!
There are over 200 pieces of his work from wire and wire Circus, through
mobiles and ending with his stabiles...also many of his paintings which I
was not as familiar with as the sculptures. Must admit I was throughly
Calderized at the end of the tour but I wouldn't have missed it for the
world. If you get a chance to see this tour, please go. There is NO WAY to
appreciate his work from a video or book. This you have to see in person!
