Bio

Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Anthony attended the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut followed by Cornell University and the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting.

He then built a house on a mountaintop in rural New Hampshire and painted watercolors and had several one man shows in Boston. A sense of unease in both the isolation and the subject matter of his paintings resulted in the selling of the house and a move to Manhattan. His new, part time occupation of erecting shelving for the storage of office records resulted in the discovery of a new medium, metal. Further exploration combined with previous interests in the wind and movement led to the making of kinetic wind sculptures. He then strung discarded elevator cables across local rooftops. On those cables he hung his first series of wind powered sculptures.

He now lives on Orcas Island, Washington, with his business partner wife. His work has sold in the Middle East, California, and many places in between. It has been showcased in palaces, sculpture parks, and the Barneys Christmas window in Manhattan. Most recently he designed the cauldrons for the Brazil Rio Olympics; one for the opening ceremonies and another, permanent, outdoor version that resides in the downtown section of Rio.

Anthony’s work is not available for commission. His process keeps him working through the nights in his remote island workshop. The pieces resulting from that work which are not sold are listed on this website in the ordering section.

Kinetic sculpture resides at the intersection of artistic inspiration and mechanical complexity. The making of one of my pieces relies on creative expression, metal fabrication, and a slow design process in equal parts.

It aims to alter one’s experience of time and space when witnessed. It also needs to weather winds of 90 mph and still move in a one mile per hour breeze and do so for hundreds of years.
