The Zommer chime has a bronze dome-shaped top, from which hang five desert bells. Employing an ancient technique of bell-making, passed on through generations, these bells are made by hand in the Kutchchi desert region of western India. The bells are formed from sheets of recycled steel beaten into shape by hand, then dipped in copper. The bells are then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln where the heat anneals the metals, welding them into bronze and giving each piece its unique patina. After firing, each bell is individually hand-tuned.
Made in India.
