About

Contemporary artist Val Bertoia's 'Relaxing Spray Sculpture'. This kinetic sculpture is made of two groupings of stainless-steel wires that were made by Harry Bertoia (circa 1950s-1960s). The wires were silver-melted together at the ends then mounted horizontally on a stainless steel stem and base. Inscribed B-1821 on the side of base and is sold with a Title of Authentication from Bertoia Studio.

Val Bertoia, son of artist Harry Bertoia, was born in Santa Monica, California in 1949. In 1950, Harry moved his family to Pennsylvania, to establish a studio, and to work with Hans and Florence Knoll. Val grew up there and went on to study Mechanical Engineering at Indiana Institute of Technology in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in the 1960s. In the 1970s, Val worked with his father, Harry, in making and installing large-scale sculptures for architects worldwide. And by 1979, Val continued the sculpture-business of his father's legacy.

Provenance: Acquired directly from Val Bertoia.
