Luce Artist Biography

James Leonard made his first "wind machine" when he was twenty-one and working as an appliance repairman. Childhood memories, celebrities, or the streets around his home in Brooklyn inspire his pieces, which often incorporate many moving parts. ("One Man's Windy City," House and Garden, 1991)
