I believe an industrious Canadian Beaver had second thoughts about a particular branch while constructing his home. If you are intrigued by our national animal, this is the mobile for you! The branch floated it’s way to my large blue IKEA bag to re-purpose itself in this driftwood mobile.
Seven dragonflies suspended from or supported on three driftwood arms.
Stabilizing bob: metallic bronze confetti encased in acrylic resin: amber-coloured glass accent beads.
Each piece of driftwood I use for my pieces is personally selected for its uniqueness, from the shores of the Ottawa River, meticulously cleaned and protected with a light coat of water-based, satin-sheen urethane to enhance the colour variations of each arm.
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.
Size: 24″ (61cm) at widest point; 23″ (58cm) drop measured from top arm.
