Wind Chimes

I have been making giant wind chimes for 25 years, progressing through many design stages - the current series in the key of G is a limited edition of 10 chimes.

The curved spire and leaf-shaped fin are my trademarks since 1992. The fixed spire represents the masculine pole and the receptive fin represents the feminine pole.

The bells are made of an aluminium alloy, and the wood is a sustainable Radiata. For the current series of components I spent time working with a small village of woodworkers in North Vietnam.

Other tunings are available, but I have found a simple pentatonic scale (like the black notes on a piano) to be the most popular.
