Wind bell Tsubomi
This wind bell is manufactured using traditional casting techniques which have been passed down through the generations for over 400 years in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. You can appreciate the clear sound which can only be made by a brass wind bell. The brass body 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.
