Stylised Arrow Weathervane, Weathered Zinc and Copper with Natural Verdigris, Northern European, c.1840 | A simple well drawn traditional arrow form weather vane of restrained elegant design, with a ball finial above a generous point and well feathered arrow. Now bearing a pleasantly weathered and textured surface to the zinc and copper elements, it has a bold graphic appeal that would compliment an eclectic contemporary space.
'Rooster Weather Vane' by Miranda Watkins. Inspired by the tradition of weather vanes, I used my skills as a three dimensional designer to create an egg with a difference – both structural and functional. “Rooster” Weather Vane is a charming contemporary design, to engage and delight! A simple profile symbolises a rooster perched proudly on his gilded egg, while showing his audience the direction of the wind at any given time.
by sheahan+quandt architecture Kinetic sculptures are particularly nice, like contemporary weather vanes. Here it should be noted that the view of art from a house is just as important as the view of it with the house as a backdrop. This kinetic sculpture is carefully sited to take advantage of views through the full-height glazing.
