Catch the Wind

Create a peaceful respite indoors or out with Jay Jones' autumnal mobile. Inspired by the golden aspen trees of Colorado, Jay casts the copper leaves from real aspen tree leaves. Each copper leaf is hand-hammered and torched at the edges to bring out the metal's natural sunset hues. The leaves hang delicately from the mobile and spin with the slightest hint of breeze, filling the surrounding space with glints and glimmers as the sun hits the honey-colored copper. Handmade in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Calmness moves Jay Jones. “I find that I’m most inspired when I’m in a museum,” he says. “Most of the time, I’m bombarded by noise and distractions. Museums are usually cool and quiet places.” That sense of stillness—and gentle movement—is reflected in his delicate copper mobiles. Jay’s pieces have been known to have a nearly hypnotic effect. “I was participating in a gift show when a girl of 5 or 6 came into my booth and just stood there looking at my work,” says the Greensboro-based artist. When her mother said she liked the mobiles too but didn’t know where they would put one in their home, Jay recalls, “The young girl said without hesitation, ‘Don’t worry Mom, the house will tell you where it needs to go.’”

Nice Mobile

I purchased this for family that is moving from Colorado to Massachusetts and I wanted to give them a little reminder of Colorado in their new home. The mobile is nicely balanced and I think will move gently in air currents. I wish it had a bit more delicate touch as the wires and leaves are a bit "heavy" looking for me and the patina could be more natural looking. But, my recipients liked it and once it is hung from the ceiling I'm sure it will look very nice.

Gorgeous mobile

This is just a gorgeous piece of art. Copper with green accents and a flowing design that moves gently in even a very light breeze. Ours is hanging from a rafter in front of a wood burning stove with fan and the effect is mesmerizing.

My mother gasped when she opened this gift. She loves copper and this piece shines bright. She's at the stage in her life where she doesn't want to own any more junk. She only wants quality possessions. She loves this. Hung it up immediately. It's a simple but lovely work of art that will enhance any space. Worth every penny.

I bought this mobile for a corner decoration in my baby's nursery, and I absolutely love it! I grew up in the Colorado Rockies and wanted to bring a small bit of that into the baby's room-- this mobile is just what I was looking for. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the piece itself has already gotten praise from friends and family.
