Soleri Wind Bells

Soleri wind bells are designed by world famous architect Paolo Soleri. The bells are all original and are cast in bronze, with a lovely green to turquoise or from orange to red patina.

This is a Cause Bell; however, since I've had it for years, I no longer remember the cause. Perhaps it was something as obvious as saving the pelicans. These bronze bells have a beautifully clear tone. I have six of them in various sizes and configurations. If the neighbors can have barking dogs and roaming cats, then I can have my wind bells and chimes!


I'm gone for the rest of the week, attending Art Unraveled, an annual artist's retreat here in Phoenix, where I'm taking several art classes. See you next week when I get back to my garden.

Dropping by to let you know that I mentioned your blog today on my blog, though it's hard to explain what the "mention" involves. The relevant post is this one.

Hi Aiyana, I wish you a good time on your artist' s retreat. I know your Soleri bells from Germany too! I like them very much. But I never saw one with a pelican. Have a great weekend

Hope you had a wonderful time at Arts Unraveled. I'd love to hear more about it.

The Cause Bell is lovely ... I agree, having wind chimes and bells is fine when you've got cats and dogs to contend with.
