Balancing Act, small
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 Yoga Stretch sculpture stands approximately 11" tall on it's stand. The character itself is 5 1/2 "T x 5"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. If you do use this piece outside, we recommend storing indoors for the winter to extend the life of the concrete.
