Vintage Paolo Soleri ceramic plaster-cast windbell, ceramic clapper, brass fin and brass chain. Wonderful patina consistent with age.
Plaster cast bells have a smoother texture and do not have impressions as the silt bells do, but have a broader surface for complex and rich carvings.

Paolo Soleri (1919-2013), founder of Arcosanti
Through his work as an architect, urban designer, artist, craftsman, and philosopher, Paolo Soleri explored the countless possibilities of human aspiration. In his philosophy "arcology” (architecture + ecology), Soleri formulated a path that may aid us on our evolutionary journey toward a state of aesthetic, equity, and compassion. Soleri Windbells have provided a major source of funding for Arcosanti and the Cosanti Foundation for over half a century.
