|Enjoy giving or owning a bronze hand cast heirloom
bell. Each bell is hand made using age old traditional
methods and materials that trace back for centuries. The
family bell casting shop is located in a tiny village in the Darlana Folklore
of Sweden a
region long famous for its bronze casting
and wrought iron mastery.
Each bell is individually sand-cast using techniques developed over
centuries of practicing the master bell-makers art.
The molds used in traditional bronze bell casting are
only used one time, and new molds must be made for
each bell. As a result, each bell is truly unique.
After the rough cast bell has cooled, the long
process of finishing and polishing begins.
