We were hunting for unique gifts and visited this foundry and shop that offered interesting cast bells. This facility carries on the tradition of a legendary Arizona artist.

A bit hard to find but well worth a visit. A realization of the vision of Paolo Soleri and a tribute to his ideas. Beatiful bronze bells

Each time I'm in Phoenix I visit Cosanti. I'm captivated by the beautiful bells and ceramic tiles. Seeing how the bells are cast (if one times the visit properly) is quite interesting. There is so much more to a visit than just what I have...More

Very artsy and unique site where they make incredible hanging bells. Pricey as real art work is, but easy to navigate on your own.

This place is like a wonderland and surprisingly located in an upscale Scottsdale neighborhood. Cosanti is like a factory for metallic bells, wind chimes everywhere! The quality and tone of these windbells is mesmerizing. Bring your wallet, you'll want one!

Took the tour for $15. The guide was very informative. I witnessed the molding of the bells at the foundery. The person, Solari, was an Italian ceramicist. He was an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright for 1.5 years. The structure of the building is something...More

After visiting Arcosanti and the Soleri Exhibit at SMOCA, this location qualifies at the sideshow of the Arizona Soleri empire. Folks were very nice there and the concept of an artistic island surviving in the heart of commercial PV/Scottsdale certainly entices.
