FAQ's on Our Mobiles

Who are the J and J Fused Artist?
As the name implies, J and J Fused Art stands for 2 artists. Jack is the kinetic mobile maker and Judy is the fused glass artist.   Yes we do work together, live together, and combine our personal expertise(s) on several projects together.   I make all the mobiles you see here, by hand. I also design, create, and update this website myself. I do everything on this website, including the mobiles themselves which I hand-make one by one, plus I also do the website images, photography, videography, text, accounting, answer emails and phone calls, and make mock-ups for clients. [more about Jack and Judy Schecter]

Where are you located?
We are located in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Are our mobiles mass produced?
NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! I create EACH MOBILE by hand, custom for you when you order, right here in Dallas, Texas USA. It is a painstaking process, very time-consuming, but you are assured a quality art mobile that was made specifically for you.

What Materials Are Used in Making Mobiles?
Mobiles are made from a variety of materials and I am always looking for other materials that are extremely light and pliable.  Currently, I use recycled printing plates for metal mobiles, sheet metal, colored acrylic, EVA foam, wood, and COE 90 colored glass.  I use both high quality stainless steel and/or aluminum wire for my mobiles.

Can I hang your mobiles outdoors?
Currently, the only mobiles suitable for outdoor display are the ones made of glass and stainless steel wire.

Do you make really LARGE mobiles?
Yes, I do create large custom mobiles.  Please contact us with details of what you would like.

I don't see the size I need, can you make a custom size?

Yes, contact me with your needs. Be sure to tell me your room's ceiling height, and feel free to send me a picture of the room too.

Can I pick my own colors?
[custom colors]
Yes, you can custom colorize any of my Mobiles to match your decor and taste. See the Custom page here. Colors info page here.

Can you show me an example of what my custom colors will look like?

Yes, contact me and tell me what style and colors you have in mind, and I'll create a Photoshop mockup at no charge. You can even send me a picture of your room and I'll superimpose the mobile in the room scene so you can visualize what it will look like! I do not charge anything for this extra service.

What hardware do I need to hang my new mobile?
The necessary hardware is included with each mobile. You will receive an "s" hook and nylon line with each mobile, along with the Certificate of Authenticity and full hanging instructions (it's easy to hang a mobile, don't worry!).

What is your turnaround time?
Each mobile (except for my "ReadyToShip" which ship same or next day) is CUSTOM HANDMADE TO ORDER SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU, nothing is mass-produced! My current turnaround time is approximately 1 to 2 weeks (larger ones take longer). Demand for my work is always high, so please order now.

What if I don't like it?
 I guarantee you will like your JandJ Fused Art Mobile. I recommend that you go ahead and hang your mobile, let it settle, and observe it, and live with it for a week or so. There's no hurry. You have 30 days to try it out.

If you don't love it, simply return it for a full refund of the purchase price, less shipping. Please package it up carefully so it is in new and sellable condition when I get it back. Be sure to contact me first.
