Information wanted on instrument builder
« on: May 15, 2014, 02:36:58 PM »
I'm hoping someone with a better memory than I have can help me. I'm looking for information on a furniture designer who also made musical sculptures out of steel rods. He is either Spanish or Italian I believe and had a barn somewhere with his sculptures in it. Sort of a musical barn. He is now decesed, but his son still has his collection. I'm kind of embarrased because I think I was the one who first posted about him on here or the Relaxed Machinery site years ago. I've tried searching on past hypnos posts, but no luck. I can't figure out how to search on the Relaxed Machinery site, but I am going to try again in a minute. I'm probably just asking the question wrong. Thanks

I found it. Harry Bertoia was the artist. Forrest Fang was actually the one who pointed me to him in a discussion I had started about an electric gong exhibit in Austin several years ago. Here's a great video if anyone is interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtZ3qmGBWEM
