Kinetic ArtHeavy metals, shaped into gentle curves, are delicately balanced to create fluid movement - this describes what Clayton Whitehouse so skillfully brings into fruition as he creates his beautiful kinetic sculptures.  The smooth, abstract designs are simple yet complex and the lustrous metals used to create the pieces lend the sculptures a classical elegance.

Clayton's kinetic sculptures of stainless steel and brass can be displayed indoors or out as they are activated by a gentle touch or by a horizontal air flow. The highly-polished metals change in appearance as they reflect off nearby colors and, with the proper lighting, the movement casts a reflection that dances delicately off the walls. And then there is the other element of the sculpture at rest - so beautiful and statuesque that one canít help but admire it even before the movement begins.

People are enchanted as the kinetic sculpture begins its ever-changing movement to entertain them. As the balanced portion of the sculpture moves, it is both soothing and tranquil and pleasing to the eye.

Kinetic art by kinetic artist Clayton Whitehouse evolves in the form of metal kinetic sculptures. Clayton works in stainless steel and brass and often combines the two metals to make a truly stunning kinetic sculpture which can be activated by a gentle touch or by a horizontal air flow. Each kinetic sculpture is individually handcrafted and they range in size from tabletop scale to over-life-sized pieces suitable for large spaces or outdoor installations.

     When asked how he came to create his kinetic sculptures, Clayton replies that all the experience he gained over thirty years in other vocations working with metals brought him to where he is today as a kinetic artist. He has been creating his kinetic sculptures since 1986 and has progressed from his unique method of balancing the sculptures, allowing them to rotate, to motorizing them. This form of kinetic sculpture seems to appeal to everyone who views them either at an art festival or in art galleries where Claytonís work is displayed. His kinetic art is collected worldwide.
