Soleri-Signed Originals

For 50 years the Paolo Soleri Studios have produced a wide range of bronze and aluminum sculptural pieces renowned the world over. The bronze and aluminum foundry at both Cosanti and Arcosanti typically pour two to three heats, a hundred pounds of bronze a day, with an average of 50 bells a heat.

Sand casting, lost Styrofoam and lost wax techniques are used to create large mobile-like bell assemblages. Custom pieces with both patina and burnished finishes are sought after by collectors and adorn public and private buildings, residences and art galleries around the world.
