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.
