Today is 100 years since Harry's birthday. His childhood nickname was Arieto ("little Harry") and my mother Brigitta also called him Arieto (unless she was mad at him!). The support and help that has come toward the HarryBertoia foundation is almost overwhelming, and very much appreciated. The Kickstarter project is funded, people come out of the woodwork to assist us, and life is good!
Celia will speak at the opening of the Cranbrook Bertoia Jewelry show this Friday March 13th. It is for members only, but they are having a special discount if you come on Friday of $25 instead of $50. The way his jewelry led to his later sculptures is really quite remarkable. Come if you can!
