Wind Sculpture Creation Process

Wind Sculpture Creation Process

Lyman Whitaker's Artistic Process | Wind Sculptures CanadaEach Wind Sculpture™ hand-crafted in the studio reflects master artisan quality. They range in height from 5 to 27-feet tall, and can be installed alone, in small groupings or in a Wind Forest™. The kinetic shapes are bold and distinctive. Based on technical and imaginative innovations, new Wind Sculptures™ are always in development.

The sculptures are fabricated from copper, steel and stainless steel that provide beauty and strength. Each Wind Sculpture™ is secured against theft and rests on a sealed ball bearing at the top of a vertical rod. They also come with a steel ground mount receptacle for simple installation; concrete bases are available for smaller pieces. Lyman’s designs permit the sculpture to be responsive to the currents of the wind, allowing changing forms to emerge in a slight breeze, yet balance in high winds.

The weathered color pallet fits extremely well with a variety of locales; the rust, brown, tan and green are all elements of the applied patina. The copper and stainless steel elements have a glistening effect as they move in the sun and low lighting definitely enhances the appeal at night. The sculptures are intriguing when caught in one’s peripheral vision for a second, but not a diversion; up close, the experience is mesmerizing and interactive.
