“Creating clay figures and turning them into mobiles started as an entertaining pastime for me at the beginning of the quarantine brought on by Covid-19 in March 2020. As a senior sculpture major at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I was abruptly pulled out of my studio and left with no materials and no space to create. I decided that, rather than pausing my studio practice, I would continue creating sculptures with the materials I had on hand: aluminum foil, armature wire, and Sculpey clay. The inspiration for these small animal characters came from my involvement on the Board of Directors at Chenoa Manor Animal Sanctuary and Learning Center. Chenoa is a non-profit sanctuary and is home to over 200 previously neglected and abused animals, all of whom inspired my earliest mobiles. As I continue to make mobiles, I am experimenting with different animal themes as well, from native birds to sea animals to woodland critters. It has been a delight to share these mobiles with others, helping them find new homes where they can be enjoyed as wall art, baby room décor, or hanging three-dimensional sculptures.” -Megan Smock
