Extreme Wind Chimes

A few days holiday at Whistler Ski Mountain got me thinking (oh, oh). Seeing how some people live, I decided some really large wind chimes might be interesting. This large, heavy natural beach stone is combined with extra-large copper chimes. It stands out. See this and other recently made substantial works on the 'Major Works' page of my website.

People who own multi-million dollar vacation homes are not the sort I hang out with. But last week I did get to spend a few nights at Whistler, soon to be the home of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The weather was crummy, so I must say, I enjoyed the luxurious accommodation:

But just because I was loafing around doesn't mean I wasn't working. I thought a lot about my designs, and I guess these oversized palaces got me dreaming of oversized wind chimes. So as soon as I got back home, I got going on some really large, new designs.

Who knows, maybe someone at Whistler will one day hang one of these at their little 'ol vacation hut.


  1. Wow, this is a beautiful home. How did you get any work done. I would be staring out the window all day.

  2. Hi,
    Thanks. Not sure if you mean the view from where I took the wind chime picture (my house), or the vacation place we got to spend a couple of days at. If the latter, well that's not ours. Tim
