The Sorcerer’s Wand acquires its name from the longest, though lower-most arm of the mobile. Created off-centre, a team of copper dragonflies, balancing near the wand’s tip, work to disrupt the next incantation coursing through it. The slightest breeze will set the sorcerer’s wand in motion, stealing your mind away from present concerns escaping into a your favourite mystical realm.
Seven copper dragonflies; three curly willow arms, jet-black stain. (This is not driftwood.)
Stabilizer bob: Glass, grass green; gold-tone metallic mesh; yellow and green accent beads.
Off-centre “wand” requires minimum 40-inch diameter clearance for unimpeded movement.
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.
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: 28” (71cm) at widest point; 42” (107cm) drop measured from top arm.
