Monumental Garden Bell by Tom Torrens


An incredible, monumental garden bell by Tom Torrens. A custom, Japanese-inspired edifice in iron and wood; an arch nearly 7 feet in height suspending a large, cylindrical bell by oversized hook and ring. Custom, original iron and leather striking-mallet hangs centrally at one post. Outstanding, impressive scale and proportion with a modernist, graphic Silhouette. Much-desired, evenly-oxidized patina from years of life outdoors. An exceptional, meditatively- and musically-interactive garden ornament good for use indoors or out.
