Lyman Whitaker has been a practicing sculptor for over 50 years, with a unique knowledge of materials and their application. The past 30 years have primarily been focused on creating Wind Sculptures, each of which is produced by hand.
As a master in the kinetic sculpture discipline, Lyman is known round the world. His sculptures are seen in museums, at the seaside, in urban areas, in public venues and back yards - a reflection of their wide appeal.
The Wind Sculptures are kinetic art that responds to the changing currents of the wind. Lyman has created sculptures that are innovative, artistic and responsive to their surroundings. Each is hand-produced and has a high degree of mechanical integrity and quality craftsmanship.
His compositions can vary from single, 5 foot (1.5 m) tall pieces to "Wind Forests" consisting of groups of sculptures standing up to 27 foot (8.2 m) tall.
