Balancing Act, medium
Kinetic sculpture with a quirky twist - this has been Mark's preferred style of creativity in many of his sculptural pieces. While the designs appear simplistic, it actually takes a great deal of skill to balance the elements and design just so. Mark cuts out the character out of solid steel and welds it onto a weight he creates with concrete cast into a metal ring. The stand is a separate unit with a heavy concrete base. With a little breeze or gentle nudge, this character will rock back and forth.
Mark's stylized Balancing Act sculpture stands approximately 20" tall on it's stand. The character itself is 12"T x 9"W. The piece is made of steel with a solid concrete weight and base.
This sculptural piece has been deliberately 'pre-weathered' then sealed with an oil to protect. If used outdoors, the paint will gradually fade and more rust will develop. Spraying the piece with a clear coat (such as Tremclad or Rustoleum) will slow this process. We recommend storing indoors for the winter to extend the life of the concrete.
