An Early Bronze Shot Sculptural Construction by Harry Bertoia
Bertoia developed a number of unique styles during his sculpting career, the shot or slag constructions are quite uncommon, having been created from bronze foundry slag, rejoined and resahped according to his artistic guidance. The present example, a large bowl form has an incredibly detailed and dense surface, countless individual orbs and globs of bronze have been formed into a larger whole, with the pure bronze exposed at its rim. A very natural appearance, somewhat like that of a geod.
