RESIDENT ARTISTS

 

Using the slightest breeze these sculptures move with graceful sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion while remaining outdoors all year round. They will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!

Watching their motion has been described to be ‘as relaxing as watching a lazy river’.

Every sculpture is shaped and assembled by hand, using the highest quality bearings, copper, brass and stainless steel. Built to last for decades without maintenance, they will provide a graceful, peaceful motion to any garden.

The flowering gardens of Angela Lensch Gallery feature over a dozen different styles and sizes of their kinetic sculptures. From polished copper to blue/green patina.

 

Fabrication:

  • all the copper cups are hand cut from a large sheet of copper
  • then each cup is hand shaped with an air hammer on an oak log
  • solid brass rods are used to hold the cups in alignment
  • specific degrees/angles are laid out for each design and soldered
  • all spin on a solid stainless steel axel with
  • a greaseless bearing (top) & bushing (bottom)
    • no oiling or maintenance needed

Finish:

  • every sculpture is either hand polished (copper)
  • or sprayed with a patina (blue/green)
  • and then sealed with a high quality clear coat
  • they will keep their final finish for 10-15 years
  • sculptures can be outdoors year round

Size / Pricing:

  • Small: $450
  • Medium: $650 – $825
  • Large: $1100 – $2200
  • Large One-of-a-Kind: $2800-$5000

Transporting:

  • they travel with ease in most vehicles because of their durable & lightweight design
  • shipping is also available through Pack-N-Ship
    •  a custom wooden crate is made for the piece so that it is suspended within the crate during shipping

Polished Copper finish

Angela & Tony learned the art of kinetic copper & brass sculpture from their mentor; the renowned, Wisconsin artist, David Riemer. You may recognize his mesmerizing copper wind sculptures from Egg Harbor’s ‘Harbor View Park’ as well as many private collections and galleries around the Midwest. Riemer’s kinetic sculptures were featured at Dovetail Gallery (2010-2014) in Egg Harbor prior to being featured at Angela Lensch Gallery (2016-2020). He retired from production sculpture at the end of 2019 and is enjoying exploring one-of-a-kind copper sculptures in his free time.

Door County Artist

Jeanne learned an appreciation for the painting process at her Grandmother’s knee, watching her paint in her studio with the scent of turpentine and cedar trees in the air. Her life has taken her on many disciplinary roads and she has at different times focused on music, art and nursing.

She began painting professionally in 1996 and sought out the art community in Door County. Refreshing and expanding her skills by taking classes at Peninsula Art School in watercolor, figure drawing and acrylic painting.

In 2001 Jeanne called Door County her home. From 2008 – 2019 was the resident artist at Lost Moth Gallery (Egg Harbor) and currently, besides at Angela Lensch Gallery, her large paintings are featured at Off the Wheel Pottery (Egg Harbor).
