Modern Wind Bell A Unique Handmade Gift
A rare sight, these modern wind chimes designed with Malou Leontsinis have a big sound. We designed these as minimalist as possible.
Wabi-Sabi, imperfectly handmade in the USA.
The very well put together, unique minimalist design and carved sound hole produces a clear, clean sound that can be heard in the video below.
The sound hole was inspired by my interest in the construction of guitars. The different shapes of their f-holes and how they impact the sound of the instrument. It also applies to ceramic wind chimes, where the carved sound holes transmit the outside air vibrations within the bell caused by the body's resonance, ringing out with a rich tone. Making the industrial designed wind bells' output dramatically more powerful.
You choose from four different clay/color combinations. The wind chime comes in Rustic Tan, Rustic Red, Black and White. The 2.5 inch wind chime clapper is also ceramic (my other bells have a wooden clapper), available in those colors as well. Six small beads appoint each modern wind chime at the hanging holes of the wind bell.
Both artists logos are stamped into the side of the bell bottom, verifying the authenticity of the design.
