Studio M launches outdoor kinetic art

ST. LOUIS – Studio M, formerly Magnet Works, will launch a new line of outdoor kinetic sculptures in the gift and home markets 2016.

The line, named Kaleidoscope, features vibrantly colored dimensional sculptures that can be mounted on a variety of surfaces, including fences, trees, auger posts and more. The design of the Kaleidoscope collection allows a layer on each kinetic sculpture to gently spin in the wind.

“You won’t find anything on the market like Kaleidoscope,” said Curt Todd, CEO of Studio M. “We have carefully designed these sculptures with thick metal and high quality bearings so that their movement is subtle and smooth. The result is a calming and captivating display of color and movement.

The artist behind the line, Carol Roeda, has been creating artwork for over 40 years and is well known for her popular line of decorative magnets, “Embellish Your Story” by Demdaco.

“Carol has a passion for creating art that inspires people and brings them a sense of joy,” said Anne Brown, Director of Product Development, Studio M. “When we first started talking about the concepts for this line, the movement was an important theme. The kinetic element of these sculptures symbolizes the movement and the change that we each experience in our own lives.

Studio M will launch Kaleidoscope in January along with three more new collections from artists Mary Engelbreit, Susan Winget and Jennifer Brinley. The company will also expand each of its existing lines, including Art Poles, Gypsy Garden and more.
