As a photographer who has spent the better part of a decade documenting some of South Africa’s most stunning homes, hotels, restaurants and lodges – photographer David Ross has parlayed his keen eye for design and love for clean lines into a second career as an artist. His art form of choice is mobile sculpture and his portfolio now includes three pieces – each of which is individually and meticulously hand machined, assembled and balanced.
Shown above is Model 002, a combination of hexagonal brass rods, matte black powder coated shapes, hand burnished bolts and Dyneema braids (one of the strongest braids available). Be sure to check out the video below for a glimpse into Ross’ process and to see how beautifully these mobiles move.
David Ross’ introductory range of mobiles are available in limited quantity through select South African showrooms. For a list of locations, scroll to the bottom of his home page at davidrossdesign.co.za.
