Soleri Bells

In case you don’t know, Arcosanti generates much of its income through the sale of wind bells designed by Paolo Soleri.

And I’m now trying to incorporate a short and not so complicated version of that story into the film, with visuals we shot of the bronze bells being made in the foundry. It’s gorgeous footage. Hopefully I’ll have a little clip to show soon.

If you’re interested in buying a Soleri bell, visit Cosanti Originals. They make great presents, I’ve given several to friends.
