A diet of a peace after a peace after a peace.

I made this object on the right out of steel and quartz. It is called an Upping and there are going to be about 14 of them of various forms. They hang from architecture and are designed to sway back and forth in a breeze. They are being commissioned by a special client who likes living with them. They hang from a covered walk way open to the southern breeze. The bells ring, the birds sing and a resinous incense burns continuously. Sounds like a dream but it isn't. Or is it?
