Bill Loyd

CANISTER BELLS

Loyd's current interests include brass and copper water features, glass waterwalls and the creation of wind and percussion instruments from discarded pressure vessels. The qualities of each vessel are quite different. Each offers the intuitive challenge of coaxing the purest tones from the rusty cylinders. Loyd's interest in creating/manifesting function and form from metals was piqued early in childhood as he assisted his father and uncle blacksmith, weld, repair and construct equipment for the family dairy farm in Colorado.
