John Mishler - Sculptor

Renowned sculptor, John Mishler specializes in the design and fabrication of industrial metals including aluminum, copper, steel and stainless steel to create both abstract and symbolic artworks.

John's work has no size limit. Works range from table top, to wall and mobile pieces, including large scale outdoor museum, municiple, campus, and private commissions.

Many of John's outdoor pieces incorporate kinetic energy and have moving parts that respond to air currents. "Moving sculpture" has become John's trademark.  Motion is incorporated in his public and private works across the US.  Mishler has an international reputation.  In addition to many works across the United States, his sculpture is in collections in Canada and France.
