? On Thursday, May 20, 2010, Paolo Soleri visited the bronze bell foundry and the crew assembled a selection of bells for critique.


? Paolo stressed that he was not there to impose his views or discipline but did offer some helpful comments.


? He discussed the history of the wind-bell operation and basic design, and then examined each bell.


? “Very elegant.”

“Too many curlicues.”

“I have sympathy for that design.”

“A little baroque.”

“Mmmm.”


? The occasion called for a group portrait of the foundry crew with Paolo.
