Handmade Desert Bells


Handmade, hand-tuned brass bells with varying patinas and sizes



These bells are made in the desert region of western India by Janmamad Luhar, who uses a technique passed down from generation to generation. Whole families are typically trained and involved in the process. The bells are formed from sheets of recycled steel that are beaten into shape by hand and dipped in copper; a dough, made of flour and wheat, is molded around them. They are then buried under hot desert sand in a kiln. This process heats and then slowly cools the metals, creating the bronze patina. After firing, they are individually hand-tuned. Available in 10 sizes, from the smallest (approximately 1.35″) to the largest (approximately 12″).
