Watch George Sherwood Kinetic Sculptures in Action

George Sherwood, Flock of Birds (Lot 805, Estimate $1,000-$2,000)

In December 2012, a collection of garden sculpture attracted interested bidders from across the country. “Placed into the right natural environment, a garden sculpture can become something more than just an interesting form. It becomes an extension of nature and may even take on a personality that changes with the seasons,” wrote department director Jane Prentiss.

That personality is even more apparent when the sculpture moves! In our June 22, 2013 20th Century Design auction,¬†we are particularly excited to offer a kinetic sculpture by artist George Sherwood, titled “Flock of Birds” (Lot 805, Estimate $1,000-$2,000).

If you need a moment to relax in the middle of a busy day, these videos are the perfect thing.
