New Types of Multi-functional Caster Wheels Make Large and Small Artworks Portable For 2013 Art Shows

Share Article

New models of caster wheels, like those sold by online retailer Access Casters, are now helping artists to make their works more portable, making it possible to display and exhibit works that would otherwise be unwieldy. As 2013 begins, many artists are now exhibiting new works using these wheels.

The artistic muse is a funny thing. Striking where and when it wants, the need to create beautiful works can be felt by anyone. If the artist wishes to exhibit or sell works, though, the addition of a wheel can make this goal much easier. For 2013, many artists use the old standby of the medical industry, caster wheels, to make their artwork more practical and portable.

New Jersey based artist Andres San Milian fashioned his sculpture out of driftwood that he recovered from the Hudson River. The finished figure, a crouching man, measures about 13 feet. Due to the size of the project, San Milian built it in his home’s driveway. In order to move it to the local café where it will be displayed, caster wheels will be added to the bottom of the statue. The artist and some friends will then manually transport the piece, which is estimated to weigh around 400 pounds.

Available through Etsy, the works of Kansas based artist Casey Stueber also feature caster wheels. In these pieces the use of wheels is more symbolic, showing the figure’s need to run away. In using the caster wheel in this way, the artist has managed to take a very industrial item and transform it into an expression of art.

Online retailer Access Casters specializes in casters for any application. While many of the plate casters and pneumatic casters the company sells are used in medical applications, they can also be used creatively. The company offers many sizes and types of casters, perfect for creative uses, practical purposes, or any combination thereof.

In addition to carrying a vast array of plate casters and pneumatic casters, Access Casters offers stem casters, and many other types of simple caster wheels. The company’s friendly staff is always happy to help find the right type of caster for any situation.
