Many Metals Singing Bowl

The Many Metals Singing Bowl embodies two of Nepal's richest traditions, metalwork and meditation. Singing bowls, and the ringing hum they create, help clear your mind, cleanse your heart, and comfort your soul. To make the bowl sing, simply strike its side with the mallet. Family workshops applying metalwork skills share their craft in new markets for fair prices. Thanks to their work with our fair trade partner Mahaguthi, these families are able to earn sustainable incomes.

HANDCRAFTED IN NEPAL

  • Singing bowl is made of zinc, iron, silver, gold, tin and copper. Bowl comes with a stick made of lakuri wood and black suede.
  • Bowl: 6D (outside diameter of the top opening) x 2.75H inches; Stick: 1D x 6.25L inches
  • Handcrafted in Nepal
