Detailed product description
Beaten or hand hammered singing bowls are made entirely by hand. Each singing bowl is carefully hammered by hand, which requires several steps. Initially, the various compositions of raw metals for the preparation(copper, tin, nickel, zinc, iron, lead, silver and mercury), are melted int he furnace, according to the manufacturing requirements of either bronze, eight metals singing bowls and so forth. The hot melted metal is removed from the furnace and poured into different sized gully cups and cube shapes. Then, the metal moulds are rolled out into circular metals sheets of the required size and thickness. The sheets are then hammered according to precise measurement specifications and categorized according to weight and size. For the hammering process, 4 to 5 metal sheets are stacked and then heated at very high temperature. The red hot metal sheets are hammered by a group of skilled craftsmen until the heat in the metal cools. This process is repeated several times to form the desired size and shape of each singing bowl. (This is the reason for the fluctuations in the size and hand hammered singing bowls). Only if the meal glows red, can it be hammered. Actually, once cool, it loses its flexibility, becoming more fragile, and therefore risking the formation of cracks when struck. When the desired shape is achieved, the individual process of finely tuning and shaping each singing bowl begins. Finally, the individual singing bowls are engraved and the inner and outer surfaces smoothed flawlessly.
