Built to generate joy, the Schooner Wind Sculpture is responsive to the slightest breeze, yet also designed to endure gale-force winds. Handmade in Utah by Lyman Whitaker, these kinetic sculptures are revered for their aesthetic sophistication, mechanical soundness, and high-quality craftsmanship. Lyman fabricates his wind art from copper and steel – metals chosen for their beauty and durability. Each sculpture spins silently on a sealed ball bearing, and comes with a steel ground mount receptacle for simple installation. Deck mounts for patio placement are also available. Display sculptures individually or in groupings to create a “wind forest.”
About Lyman Whitaker
Since the 1980s, Lyman Whitaker has focused his artistic ability on gracefully capturing the spirit of the wind. Considered a master in the kinetic sculpture discipline, Lyman graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah in 1976. There he studied under Avard Fairbanks and Angelo Carvaglia, learning classical sculpture techniques as well as contemporary design. The international success of his kinetic art has allowed him to construct a well-equipped studio near Zion National Park, where he has built a creative partnership with his wife, Stacy, and brother, John.
