NOUSAKU Wind Bell UFO

NOUSAKU Wind Bell UFO

Regular Price:

$47.91
The design wind bell from NOUSAKU is a must for every science fiction fan. It looks like an UFO and the wind catcher features a man being beamed on board. The wind chime also makes a beautiful and long-lasting sound.

The UFO wind bell has been designed by Satoshi Umeno, one of Japan's most renowned designers. It is a great example for his skill to use traditional crafts to create modern products - in this case even with a little bit of humor.

NOUSAKU

 

NOUSAKU began manufacturing Buddhist altar fittings in 1916, and has more recently begun to add tableware and interior products to its lineup. It is run by the fourth generation of the NOUSAKU family and produces according to casting techniques typical for the Takaoka region, which is known for its tin and brass casting since 400 years.

 

NOUSAKU has been working with many Japanese and foreign designers to develop a wide range of wind-bells. Although using traditional production techniques they stand out with their refreshing and modern designs. Some wind-bells produce a very long-lasting and beautiful sound whereas others are more an eye-catching interior decoration.

Description

Details

The design wind bell from NOUSAKU is a must for every science fiction fan. It looks like an UFO and the wind catcher features a man being beamed on board. The wind chime also makes a beautiful and long-lasting sound.

NOUSAKU began metal casting in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture in 1916. During our early years, we created Buddhist altar fittings, tea ceremony accessories, and flower vases, later adding tableware, home accessories, lampshades, and other decorative items to our lineup. The fine appearance of our wind-bells, tableware, etc. is due to our heritage of advanced casting and refined finishing techniques handed down over a 400-year period.

With the aid of modern machinery, industrial technology and the cultivated wisdom of past masters, NOUSAKU achieves outstanding harmony in its use of innovative design and top quality materials, and offers excellent value for money.
