Bertoia Studio Sonambient Sculpture Featuring 176 Harry Bertoia Rods

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In 1999 Val Bertoia crafted this wonderful sound sculpture from 176 Beryllium Copper rods left over from the remaining inventory of his father, Harry Bertoia. The wires are silvered to a brass base in three elliptical shaped rows and provide a wonderful visual, kinesthetic and auditory experience. According to Val Bertoia, this particular gauge of rod in this exact metal composition is no longer available for purchase on the market making this piece unique in tonal qualities similar to those found in Harry Bertoia pieces. Measures: 30.5" H x 6" W x 4.5" D. COA available.
