A chime is comprised of many individual bells, ranging in tones of medium to delicate high. All measurements include the metal wind catch at the bottom. Assembled with re-cycled copper wire. Chimes are thinner walls than Bells, giving a higher pitched sound.
From within a solar-powered studio in the Colorado Rockies, Lane Dukart draws his inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds him.
Utilizing "slip" clay, each piece is individually cast and hand-carved with original designs, reflecting the environment and culture of the Southwest. Lane applies only natural oxides to accentuate the clay's inherent earthy tones and textures.
The durable stoneware clay is then fired to over 2000 degrees F, making it impervious to the elements of nature and able to withstand rain, snow, and wind.
Each finished composition, signed by the artist, is a one-of-a-kind creation, faithfully reflecting the rustic harmony of the artist's surroundings.
