Creating mobiles never gets tiring or tedious. I absolutely love it! It is the medium I will spend the rest of my life creating and exploring. There are so many possibilities not only with configuration but materials in the creation of kinetic mobiles. My favorite materials to use are watercolor paintings. I create the paintings and then add an aluminum core to keep them light but are much sturdier than just a watercolor painting on paper. There are so many possibilities in color and design.
"My glasswork is meant to be picked up and handled, turned around and tilted. I love that. As my artisan’s journey continues, in between concept and creation, there is the moment when a patron comes across a fair, a market, a festival or a gallery, gathers up a little piece of my work and exclaims in wonder. In that, there is the brilliance of all the heavens, indeed, reflected back at them in their smile captured among the glitter or glow in just one simple glass droplet. That is the good stuff, the best stuff. Now that is my inspiration." -Lisa DeFehr
