We came here based on our interest of seeing how Cosanti bronze bells are made, having recently received one as a gift. Robin, whom we met at the entrance, was most helpful and led us to where we could watch how the bells were cast....More

Interesting building design with something new and different to see at every turn. Loved that we were able to see them pouring molten metal into the forms - very educational.

We found the aesthetics of the buildings and the crafts to be absolutely fascinating. The style is unique and you can watch some of the metalwork being done. They have beautiful bells made of copper or clay and no two are alike. We ended up...More

I always enjoy a trip to this tranquil unique place. It is such a joy to just sit and listen to the bells on a windy day. We own several Soleri Bells and have enjoyed them for many years, I highly recommend you visit.

Well, this is an interesting stop, but don't expect too much. They offer a tour in the AM for either 10- 15$ which we didn't take, but the place is pretty strange and worth a quick visit. The buildings are really interesting and it would...More

This site serves as the foundry, the visitor center and the shop for incredible wind sculptures. If you read about the foundation and the work that they do before going to the location, it makes owning one of their bells or wind chimes that much...More

Cosanti Originals was a most unusual stop while I was visiting Phoenix in late February. I had heard that the windbells were very unusual and that Paolo Soleri was a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. So I thought the windbells would be more along the...More
