The many faces of Anthony Howe’s kinetic sculptures harnessing wind power

Artist Anthony Howe creates kinetic sculptures powered by the wind.

Working with the air elemental, the remote island-based artist’s pieces of work resemble many things to different people – everything from an octopus, a vortex to a sunflower.

Anthony Howe’s wind-powered, curved-metal designs tower up to 25 feet high. Weighing up to 1,600 lbs (725kg), each artwork is first built digitally to test how it will move and react to the force of wind once fabricated in the real world.

Based in Orcas Island, Washington, Anthony Howe’s stunning sculptures often see him work through the nights in his remote island studio. He designs and makes the majority of all his sculptures without the help of any assistants, with the exception of some recent large scale works fabricated by the Walla Walla Foundry, Show Canada and Huttinger of Germany.

Many of Anthony Howe’s artworks are currently on display in public spaces around the world.
