This wind chime, or "Furin" in japanese, has a very simple, minimalistic shape, the slightly green color is the natural color of the metal after being burned and shaped. The base of the bell has a darker color which was left this way to give a new dimension to it. Just like many Japanese craft it is beautiful in its simplicity.

Being fully handmade, each piece is slightly different from another and thus unique.

Kashiwagi Art Foundry  

The history of the foundry industry in Odawara dates back centuries. The book, Shinpen Sagaminokuni Fudokiko, notes that Yamada Jirozaemon opened a foundry in Odawara in 1534. This is considered the origin of the first foundry in Odawara.

In 1686 the Kashiwagi family relocated to Odawara. The family opened a foundry and became Odawara's renowned maker of sound instruments called sahari made using compression casting techniques.

The Kashiwagi family nowadays still is the leading producer of Odawara casting.
