“I am inspired by the beauty of nature, the ingenuity of man, and all things visually appealing.”

Inspired by nature, human ingenuity, and all things visually appealing, Bud Scheffel's design process starts with raw materials like sheet metal and stainless wire. He then combines elements hard and soft, textured and untextured, colored and neutral, to create contemporary art pieces that take a page from his diverse passions. “I’ve always been interested in math and physics, so I’ve created technical, complex structures incorporating both into true marvels of engineering nobody has ever seen before.”

He hopes he also creates something that sparks emotion. "To reach far into my heart, create something beautiful, and touch someone deeply," he says, "gives me incredible joy." Read a Q&A with Bud.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Leap Frog Garden Mobile:

      This hangs awkwardly and is not all I had hoped for. I wonder how the artist imagined one would hang it. To hang by the hook provided means the mobile cannot turn because the rod with the dragonfly hits the item from which it is hung. I noticed and extension in the photo that is on the "assembly instructions" but no such extension was included. I added an extension that I found around the house but that detracted from the esthetic of the object.
