Michael E Beals is a metal art sculptor who works from his studio in Apple Valley, Utah. He uses bells as metaphors for life, passage of time, and a celebration of life. Ring the bell in the morning as a celebration of the day and ring the bell in the evening as a thank you for the day. Each bell is uniquely handcrafted from steel using a 4th generation black smith technique that he learned by completing an internship from a blacksmith in Germany. The bells are colored by using a special resin that is baked on so they are able to withstand all the elements outdoors without rusting or fading. Each bell has two ledges inside the bell that the ringer can rest on in high winds so they can be quieted. Generally, it takes about 10-14 mph of wind to have them gently ring.
