This first photo shows the walkway to the art store. Soleri is a working artist and architect. He has lived in Paradise Valley for more than 50 years.
Soleri is known for his ceramic and bronze wind bells, and the sound is very nice to hear. I have two Soleri bells hanging in the trees in my backyard. Soleri is also known for his concrete-cast architectural structures.
Soleri is almost 90 years of age. Soleri came to the United States in 1947 and spent 1.5 years in fellowship with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West in Scottsdale and Taliesin East in Wisconsin.
Soleri was born in Turin, Italy and his name means "the Sun."
The second photo shows the front entry sign with some of his bells.
Look for more photos of this special artistic place over the next few days.
Soleri's studio is located in a residential neighborhood in Paradise Valley, 6433 E. Doubletree Road.
