Simple and rustic desert bells.
These bells are made by Janmamad Luhar in the Kutchchi desert region of westernIndia. Janmamad employs an ancient technique of bell making, passed on to him through generations.
The bells are formed from sheets of recycled steel. They are beaten into shape by hand, then dipped in copper. Women make a dough that they pat around the bells, the bells are then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. The heat anneals the metals, welding them into bronze, giving each piece its unique patina. After firing, each bell is individually hand-tuned by Janmamad Luhar. This is what truly makes each of these pieces unique!
