Creating sculptures that not only make music but also truly resonate with the viewer is a magical thing.

That’s why the work of Italian-born Pennsylvanian artist Harry Bertoia still captures the ears and imaginations of art and music lovers. The Washington Post has written a beautiful tribute to Bertoia’s work, with an in-depth interview with his son Val and daughter Celia that takes the reader into the barn where the elder Bertoia crafted his often immense sculptures, through his processing of crafting that he dubbed “Sonambient” and into his recorded works. Highly recommended reading for historians of art and music, and for those seeking to discover new ways to create.
