Geometric Mobiles - Celestial Visions

Stu Hughes of Vancouver, Canada creates geometric spheres as a relaxing hobby. Impressively complex designs, his mobiles are perfectly balanced with spheres that suspend gracefully from wooden dowels.


If you're like me perhaps you're thinking, How can something so complicated be relaxing to make? I've come to peace with the fact that not everyone's mind works the same way! 

I asked Stu how he began doing architectural paper crafts. He replied that with five years of undergraduate art studies under his belt, he's skilled at taking his imagination seriously and enjoys self-directed projects. Stu is currently studying structural design and is a particpant at the Miniature Paper Pavilion Club. He loves sculpture and is on a quest to design paper lampshades as iconic as those by Isamu Noguchi.

See more of Stu's dramatic mobiles in his Etsy shop Celestial Visions.

Enjoy the weekend!

Yeah, these look so amazing and complicated. I like that he relaxes when he does them. Good luck with the rest of his schooling and it looks like he's well on his way to giving Isamu Noguchi a run for his money!

Very beautiful. I admire the skill. I think if he was not relaxing while doing it, it would turn into a pile of crumpled paper.
