Biography

Bertoia learned welding at Santa Monica City College in California in the late 1940s, and immediately began to experiment in his personal evening time. Wire and platform sculptures were his first attempts. These evolved into panels and screens, which led to his early public pieces. He discovered that light would perform wonderful dances if enough space was left between the metal shapes An estimate of total Bertoia sculptures surpasses 50,000 – a phenomenal number of works for a man who passed at age 63. An in-progress Catalogue Raisonne’ is being compiled by Mary Thorp (see www.hbrp.net).
