In the seventies a series of commissions
allowed the self-taught sculptor  
to mature in his art 
free from outside influences.

This seven foot tall fireplace now 
        graces Harmony Wine Cellars.     
The all-steel harp-like instrument above
had 10 strings and a  surprisingly rich sound.

In exchange for engineering work 
on his future studio,Fels made this
processional elephant horn with 
detachable carriage.

Four mouthpieces, two on the end
of the trunk and one in each tusk,
allowed several people to play it
at once.
