story
about the maker
We love how the soft twist and texture of macramé hemp rope contrasts with the hard solid stone of this large thrown bell. When we close our eyes we’re lured into meditation by its chime and find peace in the balance it brings to a room.
  • Length: 37 inches
  • Diameter: 5.5 inches
Bells are said to pay homage to the present through sound. The artist thought of every detail while crafting this bell. The hemp on which it’s hung was organically grown and its ends hand-bound. The knocker is beveled reclaimed walnut. This wheel-thrown item was made from a raw clay base and high-fired in a reduction gas kiln. Find space outside to hang it to enhance the meaning of a spot, or inside in a room or window in which it will help achieve balance and enlightenment. Wherever it is, its simple chime will brings us back to now.
