Tibetan singing bowls are created from particular combinations of metals. They are so named because they both originate from Tibet and when played, they sing. The bowls songs are beautiful harmonic tones and overtones.
Tibetan singing bowls have their origins in the Himalayan region and are believed to date back many centuries, but their history shrouded in mystery as very little written information is available.
It is believed that traditionally the Tibetan bowls were hand made from a combination of seven metals. The making of the Tibetan bowls is an ancient art form with each individual artisan family having heir own Tibetan singing bowl ‘recipe’ for the weights of each of the traditional seven metals. The families closely guarded production techniques, as well as the blessings and consecrations they used. Each hand-made bowl is unique and with details of each families’ process withheld from the public. Making skills are passed down from generation to generation.
