This mobile is called “Coco”. Can you figure out why?
It’s a continuation of sorts from the “Of Course I Still Love You” mobile. It has a similar horizontal structure, and the elements have a similar shape. The color scheme couldn’t be more different though. This one features colors such as “juice” and “topaz” (I don’t make these things up).
The mobile is constructed with aluminum sheet for the shapes and galvanized steel for the wires. The shapes are painted with Montana Black spray paint. This mobile features riveted construction, which is aesthetically more pleasing than the Calder-esque “hook” connection. The dimensions are 27” dia. x 10” high. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor installation.

After I sold the first “Baby Dragon,” my wife was sad. She (and I) thought it was really cute. She suggested I make another one, but this time in yellow.
“Why yellow?” I asked.
“Because it’s a happy mobile, and yellow is a happy color.”
Works for me!
This is a petite, delicate mobile. The shapes are 3D-printed using PLA filament, hand-sanded and painted and then connected using stainless steel wire. It’s fully articulated, meaning each element can rotate 360 degrees. This means there are infinite variations. It’s very responsive to indoor breezes (which is where it should live…it’s not an outdoor dragon).
Dimensions are roughly 15” high by 15” día. (38 x 38 cm)

This mobile is made from aluminum sheet metal and galvanized steel wire.
Where does the title come from? This mobile was completed on the same day that SpaceX successfully launched humans into orbit. The first stage of the rocket came back to earth and landed on the drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You”. This ocean-going ship was named after sci-fi writer Ian M. Banks, who wrote a book that included a starship by that name.
“Of Course…” is a handcrafted, classic mobile using galvanized steel wire and painted aluminum sheet. It uses rivets rather than the traditional wire loop to attach the shapes. The paint is by Montana Cans (an elite German spray paint company). This mobile is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Because of its horizontal nature, this is suitable for lower ceilings as well.
Dimensions are roughly 12” high by 29” día. (30 x 74 cm)
