Bertoia for the Holidays
Photo by The Exchange Int, @theexchangeint
With the holidays approaching, the foundation wants to share in the festivities! We want to show our appreciation for your support through offering Christmas discounts to you.
All silver square rings will be 20% off until December 15th. The rings are an exact replica of a model that Harry made for himself, size 13! While he was a relatively short man, about 5'7", his hands were huge from all the use.
Normally $250, the rings will be offered at $200 starting December 1st. If you purchase two rings at the same time, you will also receive a Bertoia Gong T-shirt. Please note that the ring sizes 6 through 11 are first come, first served. There are less than seven rings left in sizes 6, 7, 8, and 11, and plenty of sizes 9 and 10.
Click here to shop on December 1st. Make us run out of inventory!
The one gold round pendant left (of an edition of 4), usually $7000, will be offered at $5600 (also 20% discount). This is pure 18 carat gold, not just gold plated, and is a full 1.8 ounces of gold. With gold prices hovering around $1300 per ounce, you are getting about $2300 worth of gold, not to mention an original Harry Bertoia design that may, quite literally, last forever.
Notecards, for traditionalists who actually send cards, will be discounted as well. It's usually 15 cards for $30, but now it will be $24! They are monotype and woodcut designs by Harry Bertoia with blank interiors.
Make an artistic statement with your holiday greetings this season!
Don't forget your feature film for the holidays!
Don't miss this piece of Harry Bertoia history. A film originally created in 1971, commissioned by Harry himself, has just been re-mastered. It includes footage of Harry discussing the origins of Sonambient (while sitting in his personal Bird Chair) and then giving a concert in the Sonambient Barn of Pennsylvania (near East Greenville).
As you may have heard, the Sonambient Barn no longer holds the sound sculpture collection that Harry so carefully curated. We are in the process of finding a permanent, public, museum home for the unusual orchestra. This makes this film all the more special.
The limited release, collector's edition makes for a delightful Bertoia evening.
You will receive:
- 16 minute documentary of Harry in the Sonambient Barn
- 20 minute full interview of Harry, which has never before been released to the public
- A physical piece of the original 16 mm film strip
- A beautiful booklet of photos, writings and history
- An audio CD of the three Bertoia siblings – Harry, Oreste, Ave – performing and singing together in the Barn
Available now at our online store, along with other Bertoia goodies. Click here to shop!
Thank you for all you do for Bertoia! Happy Thanksgiving!
