Balancing Spheres

Nelson R. Smith, Rocky Mount NC

This sculpture was part of the first-ever Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail 2013-2014

Balancing Spheres (right) is a work created by Nelson R Smith of Rocky Mount, NC. 

It will be featured in Horne Square at 349 East Main Street. It is made from scrap metal from a manufacturing facility and was built from the bottom up. The base sphere is filled with concrete and the next spheres are welded together. Smith transforms rigid steel into an object that has flow, beauty and movement. Balancing Spheres echoes imagery seen in nature but through manmade materials. The piece is 15-1/2” wide, and 63” high and weighs 120 pounds.
