The bells are formed from sheets of recycled steel. They are beaten into shape by hand, then dipped in copper. Women make a dough that they pat around the bells; the bells are then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. The heat anneals the metals, welding them into bronze, giving each piece its unique patina.

After firing, each bell is individually hand-tuned. From the smallest ‘size 0’ bell, to the largest bell, to every bell in every chime… each bell is hand tuned using an age-old technique! This is what truly makes each of these pieces unique!
