Anthony Howe constructs spectacular kinetic sculptures in a rural area in Eastbound, Washington. Encompassed by trees and wind, the natural conditions there fuel his mesmerizing work.

Howe works mostly with stainless steel that he welds to create carefully engineered suspended and freestanding objects.

The hypnotizing wind-powered sculptures spin and rotate in even the slightest breeze.

Anthony Howe is an American artist that has been making suspended and freestanding kinetic sculptures for the last 17 years. Howe’s artwork is designed to respond to the exterior natural environment of wind and light.
In his artist statement, Howe explains:
“I attempt, with an economy of means, to construct objects whose visual references range from lo-tech sci-fi paraphernalia to microbiological or astronomical models.

Utilizing primarily stainless steel armatures that are driven either by hammered curvilinear shapes or flat fiberglass covered discs, I hope the pieces assume a spare, linear elegance when conditions are still, mutating to raucous animation when the wind picks up.

Multiple axis finely balanced forms, both symmetrical and asymmetrical, conspire to create a visually satisfying three-dimensional harmony. Interior pieces include suspended gear motor and air driven wire armatures stretched with fiberglass, similar wall mounted pieces, as well as glass assemblages.”

Kinetic sculptor Anthony Howe lives and works in a rural area in Eastsound, Washington surrounded by little more than trees, wind, and other natural elements that inspire his incredible kinetic sculptures. Howe works primarily with stainless steel which he welds to create carefully engineered objects powered by the slightest breeze. Watching the motion of each piece in the videos above is totally mesmerizing and it hardly seems possible that such an object could be constructed.
