Detailed Description

Sculptor/furniture maker Roger Heitzman, has been designing and crafting custom and limited edition furnishings for over 20 years in the Santa Cruz, California area. His versatility in working a variety of materials such as wood, metal and glass has enabled him to create a wide range of innovative designs that have won national awards. His pieces offer unique visual expression that enhance and transcend their function. He has taught furniture design at the college level and as a master craftsman through Baulines Crafts Guild. His work has been on display at galleries throughout the country and photos of his work have been published in magazines such as American Craft and Fine Woodworking.

The StrataSphere is a unique kinetic sculpture built to move with the wind. It has five independent revolving elements that use copper cones to capture even gentle breezes. Its movement is similar to gyroscopes within gyroscopes as the entire sculpture takes on a random yet graceful spinning motion in the wind. Each element is independently balanced and revolves on stainless steel ball bearings for friction-free movement and a long, maintenance-free life. 24" diameter

The StrataSphere is offered in three ways:

  • With a small resin base made from a polymer with an exterior grade coating resembling stone. Two screws allow for mounting to a pedestal, post or flat surface.
  • With a tall 39" resin pedestal. The pedestal is made of a polymer resin with an exterior grade coating that resembles stone. The pedestal is hollow for ease of shipping. Once in position, fill with sand for added stability.
  • StrataSphere only - sitting on its cradle. See PDF to view cradle.

This item is crafted per order and shipped by the artist, so please allow 3 to 4 weeks for delivery. If you need a rush delivery, please call ahead to make sure we can meet your needs.

Garden Artisans were great to buy from

I ordered this wind sculpture from Garden Artisans and am extremely happy with both the product and especially the service. I had seen the sculpture elsewhere and so I knew what I was buying. It arrived much more quickly than they said when I initially made the purchase, was very well packed and the customer rep, Janet, efficiently and satisfactorily answered all my questions and concerns, I could not have asked for any better and would highly recommend this company. I will definitely be shopping here again.

Worth the Price
W Rieger (Northern NV) 8/8/2013 12:47 PM
Added this kinetic sculpture to our garden in the Spring of 2013. Well-made, precise fit, arrived in pristine condition because of the amazing job done on the packaging. The higher the wind, the better the motion, but even a slight breeze results in movement of the interior axes. Piece is signed and numbered by the artist.
