    Bald eagles soar overhead scanning the swirling white waters of the river. The fisherman is perched on a boulder watching his line, contemplating lures for trout, steelhead, salmon. A sense of quiet permeates the entire place, a wildlife refuge teeming with jackrabbits, deer, bobcats and mountain lions. A fire is roaring in the cabin and the artist is adding the final brushstrokes to a whimsical image of her husband, cut out in metal sheet, yellow oils and boots, balanced on top of a converted antique wrought iron candle stand. Balancing toys have been around for centuries, teaching children and adults about the laws of physics.

    In Victorian times, originally called skyhooks, but also known as balance toys, were first made to demonstrate the workings of counterweights and centrifugal force: simple counter-weighted toys which could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everyone's delight and amazement. They soon evolved into fun and whimsical objects, never ceasing to amuse and surprise: people loved to watch toys that were doing things that seemed impossible. In an era where the laws of gravity and electricity seemed magical, balance toys became very popular. Even though we now understand the mystery of the laws of gravity, there is still something fascinating and amusing in watching a balanced object lean and sway.
