“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.

My mom loved it! I was pleased with the quality of the product when I received it. The only issue I have with the "mobile" is that it doesn't really spin all the way around because there are no swivels installed to allow everything to spin around. I have made mobiles myself, and I use little fishing swivels for it to spin. I thought about adding them into this piece, but it is made very well already and I'm scared to mess with the construction of it. Overall, it is still beautiful and eye-catching!

Simple and Whimsical

I love the design of this mobile and the materials. I have it hung under the eaves of the house. Unfortunately, because light does not shine directly on it and it is earth tones and greens, the mobile does not show up well. I think if I hung it in the sunlight it would show better. Very pleased with it, but may move it to a location where it could be appreciated better.

Was gifted to a friend who had recently lost a spouse who loved hummingbirds. They were moved to tears by it. Was the best gift I could have given them.

Beautiful Unique Gift

This was a perfect gift for a friend who has "everything" and enjoys sitting on her deck watching hummingbirds. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but my friend was delighted.

My only suggestion is that the glass beads would be far more compelling if they were not green! The beads should be more of a contrast and would be gorgeous in a complementary color.

For the piece, I thought it was a little high end expensive for what you got. My boss loved it and it is hanging on his porch right now. We'll see how it withstands the OHIO wind. I'm crossing my fingers! The piece is beautiful and one of a kind, not something you can just pick up, which is great for my boss. I do love uncommongoods and it is my "go-to" shopping spot for hard to buy for items.
