Patinated Pressure Melt Sculpture by Harry Bertoia

Towards the end of his career, Bertoia returned occasionally to more primitive techniques to realize his creations. In this example, a thick bronze cylinder is heated to its melting point, and formed by direct pressure. The surface has a thick heavy patina, with a craggy texture. 13"H 4" W.
