Authenticity Certificate

Using closely-guarded family formulas, artisans in the Indian port city of Surat create their own metal alloys to craft this ''nana'' bell chime, sweetly soothing bells of copper, brass and iron with hand-hewn wooden clappers. Each bell chime is individually tuned to create its own uniquely resonant sound. This item is 9 inches long from the top of the bell to the bottom of the wooden clapper. May be hung indoors or out. Bell may patina with age or exposure to the elements.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
