Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Hanging Lantern Wind Chime

Traditionally crafted wind bell

Iwachu from Morioka, the capital of Iwate Prefecture in the Tohoku region of northern Japan, is mostly known for its cast-iron teapots called tetsubin: for thousands of tea lovers all over the world, an Iwachu tetsubin, with over a century's history behind it, is the only real way to enjoy a cup of Japanese tea. But there's more to Iwachu than teapots and the Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Hanging Lantern Wind Chime is the proof that if an artisan knows how to use a material, they can create anything from it!

The material in this case is, of course, cast iron: the Iwachu Japanese Cast-Iron Hanging Lantern Wind Chime is one more showcase of Iwachu's know-how that can transform this apparently crude material into small masterpieces. The chime comes in three sizes with diameters of 6.5 cm (2.6"), 8.5 cm (3.3"), and 12 cm (4.7"), respectively, and they all feature a small lantern on the top and the bell hanging under it, while the medium version also comes with an extension that looks like a monkey hanging from a tree and holding the lantern. Get the one that best fits your space and enjoy both its sound and exquisite shape and design!
