With a temporarily-exhausted supply of river driftwood, I have created a small quantity of mobiles from lengths of curly willow with applied exterior-grade, jet-black stain. The snow and ice of Canadian winters covers my bounty for many months. At first opportunity, I will be foraging a re-supply of driftwood.
These are a triplet of mobiles in the same likeness. Black-stained curly willow sporting four copper dragonflies on a single arm. All models sport substantial, copper flecked, ocean blue accent beads. For that nook, longing to be noticed.
Ocean Breeze, Ocean Mist, and Ocean Tide. like all my mobiles, the slightest breeze, even air movement as you walk past, will set this series in motion, stealing your mind from your frenetic life, helping you to regain your equilibrium. **If you require a similar style, smaller still, please check. “Ocean View.”
Designed for indoor or outdoor display. Gentle rains and light breezes only. Suggested locations include porches, enclosed patios, gazebos, sun rooms, solaria, conservatories, breezeways, spas, and bathrooms where shower steam will age the copper to a beautiful verdigris patina. Have you been debating what to do with that dormer window space? Light enough to suspend from a command hook to not damage your ceiling.
The speed at which the copper transforms in any location is dependent on the amount of moisture present.
Outdoors: 6 months to a deep bronze hue; 2-3 full years including winter to a green patina resembling that of roofs of Canada’s Parliament Buildings, Ottawa.
Indoors: New-penny look will gradually transform to a deep bronze hue over 3-4 years. Unless placed in a steamy environment, it will not transform to verdigris.
