Monumental Tom Torrens Bell Sculpture, 20th Century

About

A monumental Tom Torrens bell sculpture made of cast iron and wood with a striking mallet attached. Forged with initials "TT". Very good condition with age-appropriate wear. Dimensions: 86.25" height x 29.5" diameter The past twenty years Tom Torrens has strived to produce quality designed functional works of art from recycled and industrial materials which are pleasing to the senses. His fountains and birdbaths, impressive in their static state, take on an added dimension with the sounds of splashing, rippling water. And the wistful, expressive tones of his bells and gongs play homage to some distant land. Tom received his MFA from Washington University at St. Louis and taught sculpture on the University level for fifteen years. Tom currently lives in Washington State with his wife and son where he maintains his full-time design and production studio.
