Japanese Zen Bells
Japanese Furin Zen Garden Bells - Dozens just arrived including over twelve new designs! $10 & up. Make great gifts! FREE GIFT WRAPPING!! If you've ever visited Japan in the spring or summer, once you're outside the big city, you'll often hear a melody of faint bells, each one expressing a single note, but one that harmonizes with those around it.
Hung from the eves of homes, temples, pagodas as well as tree branches are small sand cast iron bells with a paper clapper.
Bells are placed outdoors at the first hints of spring and early summer and their sound, created from a light breeze are much anticipated and welcomed on hot days. Here in America they are referred to as Zen Garden Bells, whereas they are technically a wind chime.
The word Furin literally translates from Japanese as "Wind Bell." Their use isn't purely for their beautiful sound; instead, they are used to notify people that a cool breeze is blowing!
Each Furin comes with a string and paper wind catcher which is replaceable (it is often common to write dreams and wishes and hopes on these, in hopes that the wind will take these desires to the heavens!) As these bells are intended for fair weather summer use, if you're going to keep them outdoors year round, you may wish to replace the paper with a lightweight aluminum or tin wind catcher.
The Furin's sound is characteristic of Japanese minimalism. Usually hung on porches or eave, it is a truly soothing and peaceful sound conducive to daydreaming or meditating, invoking a relaxing and near mystical feeling.
Made in Iwate-ken, a region considered to produce the finest ironware in Japan. Each bell is hand cast in hand packed sand molds, not mass produced in injection molds. First, the shape of the bell is created out of clay. This clay master is then packed into a mold consisting of heavily packed wet sand with a small amount of clay to help bind it. The mold is pulled apart, the clay master is removed and the mold is bound once again.. can sound like a clatter. #owl#owls#bell#bells#furin#zen#windchime#windchime#zenbell#wind#fairtrade
