Iron Knocker Bell

Regular price $390 Unit price  per 

Description:
These substantial iron knocker bells hang prominently from an iron chain and have a similarly designed chain handle that you can grab and knock to create a beautiful sound.  Designed by the master ironware craftsman, Nobuho Miya, you can hang this bell in an entry way or display as a decorative accent in your home.  Due to the iron material, there is already a slight patina that will only grow with time.  Keep in a dry place to avoid rust, however rust will also add charm!

History: 
Nobuho Miya has dedicated his life to the Japanese cast iron craft. After graduating from the Kanazawa College of Arts and Crafts in 1975, he began developing his own designs to critical acclaim, winning Jugent Gestaltet Prize, Mayor Prize, and the Iwate Art Prize. His work reflects both his mastery of nambu tetsu, and keen sensibilities in modern design. Each piece is produced in the Kamasada iron casting studio, a studio in Morioka City that has been operated by the same family for three generations.
