Bell Hook

The Exploratorium has a large bell that is rung each day at the opening and closing of the museum. The bell has two large metal arms that pivot above it. The swinging action brings the arms down to strike the bell.

The bell is hung high overhead and out of reach. The museum commissioned me to make the hook you see above to grab the arms so that they can be pulled down into the bell.

I love small jobs like this. They usually give me me carte blanche with design, they rarely take too much time to complete, and they often pay cash.
