Small handmade brass bell strung with leather
The sound of bells resonates with history and tradition, adding spiritual nuance to a ceremony, ritual or meditation practice. When used as decoration on an altar or shelf, this small brass bell, with its earthy patina, also adds color, texture and a note of antiquity.
Brass dates from remote antiquity. A mix of copper and zinc that could be cast or hammered into shape, it was valued for its color, which can range from pale lemon to a deep brown, depending on the zinc content. The earliest brass objects date from 3000 BC, from Babylonia and Assyria, but it wasn’t until the Middle Ages that the material became more commonplace. Not long after the Romans discovered how to produce the metal alloy, brass coins spread throughout the Roman Empire. As time went on, brass was increasingly used for objects in homes and churches. This hanging brass bell from HomArt connects the past to the present.
Serenity, simplicity, and warmth—these qualities resonate throughout HomArt’s collection of objects and furnishings. Sustainability is also at the heart of the California company’s approach to decor. Some of its one-of-a-kind products are discovered on antiquing trips around the world, at Indian souks, Asian bazaars and European flea markets. Others are crafted from recycled materials by artists who transform abandoned materials into new decorative objects with a timeless charm.
