About the Process:

Male and female artisans in the Muslim Kutch region of India manually form and hammer the bells from recycled iron and tin and add a coat of brass and copper before firing them in a kiln. Each bell is then tuned to achieve a rustic and pleasant tone. Traditionally used as cowbells by cattle farmers, harsh agricultural conditions in recent years nearly made this art form obsolete. Through partnership with international vendors and organizations, metal workers in these rural communities have been able to preserve and repurpose their unique trade into beautiful, decorative objects and accessories.
