Wind chimes are popular throughout Japan, where their gentle sound is believed to bring relief on humid summer days. These brass wind chimes present a modern interpretation of traditional ones often found in temples, featuring distinctive geometric shapes. Crafted through casting techniques and hand-finished, they produce a unique, clear tone. Watching the cream-colored paper dance in the wind and listening to the delicate sounds of the brass bell is like meditation.
In 1916, Nousaku began manufacturing Buddhist ritual objects, tea sets, and vases from brass and bronze in Takaoka, Japan. The fourth-generation foundry employs traditional sand casting techniques, prioritizing tradition and the inherent qualities of the materials in design development. Each product is meticulously handcrafted to showcase the unique beauty of every metal.
