Large and Stunning Sonambient Sculpture by Harry Bertoia

Price Upon Request

About

A truly spectacular sounding work by Bertoia, in a very desirable scale. Five offset rows of beryllium copper are set into a brass base. The tone is a lovely upper mid range jangle, with bright overtones. Minimal effort is required to set the work in motion with the thin but sturdy rods maintaining their momentum for a great deal of time.
