Powerful Sonambient Sculpture
Outstanding example of Bertoia´s sounding sculpture. The thick solid bronze base is pierced by a 4 x 4 grid of beryllium copper rods, topped with very heavy copper knockers. The long rods with ample spacing between tops allows for a slow random evolution of tone, with the individual rods drifting independently, making occasional contact with the neighboring chimes. This piece has developed a very heavy dark patina, particularly to the tops. Sold with the original hand drawn sketch, signed by Harry Bertoia. 51.5" H 12" W 12" D.
