Handmade Glass Wind Chime Shaped Like a Gourd with Flower Paintings

Regular Price:

$23.95

This Wind chime, called Furin in Japanese, represents pink flowers. Flowers, and nature in general is a very important aspect of life and arts in Japan, that is why they are often represented on drawings. The shape of this wind chime is like a gourd which is also a shape quite often seen in Japanese traditional products. Thanks to its specific fabrication process, the Edo Furin wind chimes produce a very nice sound. Since the drawing is made on the inside of the glass, it won't deteriorate even when hung outside. The sun reflecting on the glass looks especially beautiful.

Edo Furin has been producing wind chimes for over 65 years, they have been widely recognized for their high quality products and the fact they stick as close as possible to the traditional way of producing Furin of the Edo period.

Shinohara Edofurin

When the Shinohara family started their business of handmade wind chimes about 65 years ago, the strong wish to cultivate the traditions of former Edo made them choose Edo Furin as the company name.

 

Each wind chime is hand blown and hand painted and a small piece of art by itself. Glass is melt in a furnace at 1320ºC. A craftsman will blow two bubbles of glass that are connected to each other. The first one is the main body of the wind chime and the second, smaller one is broken off after cooling down. The resulting whole at the bottom of the chime has uneven borders, that will create the unique sound when the glass pin rubs the border.
