Introducing a New Artist at Jordanwood

We are excited to introduce Moon-Lily Mobiles by Jan R. Carson to our gallery of “distinctive styles for life and home”.

Jan R. Carson's mobiles are reminders of the outdoors for those who garden, hike, or otherwise interact with the elements. But these are not ways in which the artist spends her time. She prefers to observe nature from a distance and comprehend its beauty from a place deep within herself.

"My sculpture is inspired by the balance of strength and fragility in nature. I express this equilibrium by suspending each artwork in a state of free yet limited motion. As well, perpetual, circular movement conveys both my desire to extend time, and the sensation of its endless, inescapable flow."

Jan's fiber works have been featured in juried, invitational, and solo exhibitions and are in numerous private collections. She has recently begun creating larger, commissioned pieces for corporations and public spaces.

In 2002, Jan was a finalist for the prestigious NICHE Award, honoring excellence and innovation in American and Canadian craft. Since 1999 she has been the artist and owner of Moon-Lily Silk Mobiles, the name under which she created a line of popular kinetic sculptures sold in galleries, boutiques and museum stores throughout the U.S.

Jan received her M.F.A. in fibers under Tom Lundberg at Colorado State University and her undergraduate degree from Oklahoma State University. She was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Jan creates these beautiful handcrafted mobiles from hand cut silk. Her handcrafted mobile designs are created from lightly starched hand cut silk and fine gauge stainless wire. Subtle variations distinguish each mobile as unique handmade pieces of art.

Shown above is one of her creations – Aspen Leaves, serrated leaves in gold tones grouped on delicate stems. Approximately 50” diameter, 20” depth

One tree is planted for every Leaf Mobile sold through our partnership with American Forests.

You may see other pieces she has created at http://www.jordanwood.com/moon-lily-mobiles-c-48_168.html

These pieces are made individually by the artist so please allow time for creation and delivery.
