Mobiles & other stories 
I've always had a crush for Charles and Ray Eames Dot pattern: the minimal design made of several different variations is very interesting. In a way, it reminded me of a series of mobiles so, I thought, why not trying to make one inspired by their work? You'll need:
- wooden spheres (I chose black because I had some at home);- black metal wire (choose one quite thick - 2mm would be better - so the weight won't blend it);- thin metallic wire;- modelling clay (I used itin black but you could choose any colour);
First, design your mobile: you can use the Eames pattern as a source of inspiration. Cut the thick wire in different sizes according to the drawing. Then, fill completely the wooden sphere with the modelling clay and insert the wire inside: you can put just one sphere on each end or play with different weights. When all the elements are done, start assembling your mobile. Done!
