Introduction This wind bell is manufactured using traditional casting techniques in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. You can appreciate the clear sound which can only be made by a brass wind bell. The concept of design is to express the beauty of the material, even when looking at it from below. The brass is silver plated. To accentuate the beauty of the material we make each object one at a time on a turning wheel. Given a hairline finish, the piece expresses a perfect harmony of modern design and traditional technique.
[Directions for use]
-Do not rub with a metal polisher.
-Although the object receives a colour fixing finish, the colour may slightly fade over time.
-The slip is made of Japanese paper which is water resistant but not waterproof.
-We recommend you place the wind bell indoors when the wind blows strongly.
-Wipe with a soft cloth or a sponge after use.
-Treat w ith diluted dishwashing detergent and lightly rub with a damp sponge/ cloth if needed.
