A Transient Symphony...

decoupaged wind chimes


Wind chimes have a long and varied history.  Their development spans cultures, continents and uses. As one of the world's first musical instruments, wind chimes have long been known for their soothing, meditative and sometimes earthly sounds.  As a result of their unique sound, wind chimes have served as a way of shaping the atmosphere of natural environments for millennia.
The wind chimes have been a fascination for me since childhood. I had to make some!! Based on that obsession, i designed and created this all new collection of handmade, upcycled wooden decoupaged wind chimes. These are all made out of rejected or repurposed wood pieces.

In ancient Rome, the roman chimes were called tintinnabulum. They were hung up in gardens and porticoes where they would make a tinkling sound as the wind passed through them. Bells were believed to keep off evil spirits and so they were often combined with the phallus, which was also a symbol of good fortune and a charm against evil.

In India, wind-bells are not limited to pagodas. They are also hung under the corners of roofs of temples, palaces and homes.

Tinkling so softly like a baby’s shallow breathing, they whisper in the wind on those silent nights. They rustle at the slightest blow of the careless wind. They gleam in the moonlight, out side in the garden. Their symphony is so sweet and transient. Fleeting and ephemeral…
