story
This wind bell has been made using traditional casting techniques passed down for over 400 years. We love the shape and simplicity of this bell, and the relaxing chime that echoes the meditative calm of being in nature.
  • Length: 8.5
  • Width: 2.75
  • Height: 2.25
Since 3000 BC, wind chimes have charmed us with the way they harmonize with nature. In Japan, wind bells called furin were once hung in the eaves of pagodas to ward off birds and evil spirits alike. Made one at a time on a lathe, this wind bell has a clear ring and a hanging wind sail made from water-resistant Japanese paper. Its shape recalls a simple onion. Available in gold (clear urethane coat) or silver (silver plate), the bell has a finish applied during the manufacturing process to fix the color, though it may fade slightly over time. The manufacturer recommends protecting the bell from rain and bringing it indoors during high winds.
