This wind bell from Nousaku 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.
[Directions for use] -Do not rub with a metal polisher. -Although the object receives a color fixing finish, the color may slightly fade over time. -Protect the wind bell from rain as the cotton fluff slip is not waterproof. -We recommend you place the wind bell indoors when the wind blows strongly.
