When Camelot Executive Director Eileen Szychowski commissioned a bell, it seemed natural to use the nonprofit organization’s own “homegrown” steel. Many horseshoeings later (“More horseshoes! Yes, more horseshoes!”), a bell was born.

It invites disabled students to mark the beginning and end of their lessons with a wallop. And they do. “Many of them have never had the opportunity to swing a bat or hit something as hard as they want,” observes Camelot’s Eileen Szychowski.

In fact, Szychowski reports that each student is now asked to check in by taking a swing at the bell, letting staff know when they have arrived and then when people leave the facility.

This piece has sold. Kevin would be glad to create something for you in the same spirit. Please contact us, or select from currently available sculptures.
