NileGuide Expert Says:
A Cosanti Windbell is the best and most unique souvenir to take home from your Scottsdale/Phoenix vacation. The hand-made earthen stone cast bells have a beautiful tone, and each is made in a limited run, making them collectible and rare.
- This boutique features handcrafted wind-bells and sculptures by artist Paolo Soleri. All purchases go to fund the ongoing development of Soleri's famous Arcosanti, his version of the merging of architecture and ecology. The ceramic is blended from Arizona clay, stoneware and water. Pieces are cast-molded from a "slip," hand carved with designs, and then kiln fired. Bronze bells have also been produced since 1959, using a sand-casting method. The purchase of any of these unusual and beautiful gift items supports important artistic work.
