Product Description

Wind-Bell (Home) by NOUSAKU

Enchanting summer sounds cool mind, body and soul

These charming brass Wind-Bells (Furin) are handmade using ancient, traditional casting and finishing techniques passed down over more than 400 years in Takaoka, Japan.

With their whimsical, soothing tinkle, wind-bells have been a part of the country’s sultry summer season since the Muromachi period (1333~1568). Soaking up the sounds of these gorgeous pieces of art singing in the breeze, the Japanese hang wind-bells outside their homes to help cool off on hot summer days.

Designed by Katsuji Nousaku, the fourth generation owner of the NOUSAKU foundry, each one is handmade and finished by an accomplished craftsmen.

NOUSAKU

With a history spanning some 400 years, NOUSAKU originally created traditional items such as Buddhist altar ornamentation, tea-ceremony paraphernalia and flower vases. More recently, working in collaboration with specialist designers, the company has developed metal casting techniques to create 100% pure tin interior items and tableware par excellence.
