Artistic Bells

A REAL STEEL

A former steel industry worker, Utah sculptor Doug Adams searches junkyards and fields for discarded metal items and gives them new purpose as Sculptured Bells.
 
  For example, he created the 76"H work pictured here using an assortment of metal throwaways—including half of an old 18-wheeler’s tire rim and castoffs saved from his steel mill job.

“The bell itself is an old oxygen tank used in welding,” the artisan explains. He embellished it with a nature theme.

Adams also incorporates bits of glass and stone into his creations. Here, ledgestone adds a sense of strength.

His bell sculptures can be purchased through Goldenstein Gallery in Sedona, Ariz., and used inside or out, says gallery owner Linda Goldenstein.

“Many of my clients have placed these by their front doors to be used as the doorbell,” she comments. Contact the gallery at (928) 204-1765, or view Adams’ bells at goldensteinart.com.
