Creative Process Conversations: Sculpture and Collaboration

Angela grew up on a lovely farm just outside Decorah, Iowa. She earned her BFA in Sculpture and Furniture from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and have focused those skills into her current work, creating sculpted jewelry in gold and silver.

Angela collaborated as a mosaic artist with renowned regional artist, Dave Riemer, on the kinetic sculptures displayed outside of Bjorklunden as part of the Door Kinetic Arts Festival. The flowering gardens of Angela Lensch Gallery now feature over a dozen different styles and sizes of Dave’s amazing  kinetic sculptures. From polished copper to green patina and “Tornados” to “Starflares”

Using the slightest breeze these sculptures move with graceful sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion while remaining outdoors all year round. They will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!

Watching their motion has been described to be ‘as relaxing as watching a lazy river’.

Every sculpture is shaped and assembled by hand, using the highest quality bearings, copper, brass and stainless steel. Built to last for decades without maintenance, they will provide a graceful, peaceful motion to any garden.
