IntroductionThis wind bell is manufactured using traditional casting techniques in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. You can appreciate the clear sound which can only be made by a brass wind bell.
Tanpopo (dandelion) is a wind bell that can be placed by the window to appreciate the swaying cotton and its sound. It chimes according to the wind direction and strength. The brass is either silver plated or black nickel 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.

-Although the object receives a color fixing finish, the color may slightly fade over time.
