How a bell is made
The creation of a bell requires the use of simple materials - such as soil, water, beeswax, hemp and bronze; it is then the artisan, with his mastery and the secrets that are handed down from generation to generation, that will transform this artifact - the bell - into an extraordinary musical and sacred art object, which will accompany the life of the communities that host it, marking their times and celebrating their most significant moments. Making a bell requires a long work that varies, depending on the features and size of a bell, from a few weeks to several months.
The phase preceding the actual casting takes a long time because it is necessary to prepare a model consisting of three overlapping clay molds.
