Story Behind the Art:
47 year old Bir Bahadur Bishwakarma started to work at a tender age of 9. After being involved in his ancestral occupation of copper production for more than 25 years, he undertook the training on metal sheets at Balaju Mechanical Centre. Starting the work from just two people, he and his brother, he is now being able to provide work to about 20 people working under him. With the support from the metal smith, he has been able to retain the skill amongst his community thereby providing job to other coppersmiths who come from the low-income sector of the economy. This has resulted in improved economic condition of the community as a whole.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Do Not Drop It. We have a larger one that took a fall and I cannot find a crack or dent, but once dropped they will never sing again. The Worldstock project is great stuff. Kudos for marketing and supporting artists and craftsman from around the world.Read More
The bowl is beautifully crafted and has a nice tone to it. It does not ring well on the display stand though.Read More
I have been wanting to purchase a bronze singing bowl just to try it out and this was a perfect option - I was surprised as it was better quality than I expected for the price - nice sound -easy to use (there were no instructions so I went to youtube) I love it! it makes a nice display and conversation pieceRead More
For the price I paid, it is actually okay for what I got. The description of this product is incorrect and misleading. I thought I was getting an 8" bowl, but I got a 4" bowl. The description does say "Measures 8 inches high x 8.25 inches diameter (with stand)" however, WITH the stand, it is only 4" high, and the ACTUAL diameter of the bowl itself is also 4". The sound this bowl makes is pleasant and I like it, but then again, I jumped on the price because of the size. If I had known I was getting such a tiny little thing I would not have ordered it. I am not dissatisfied with the product so I am keeping it.Read More
The bowl is pricey for what it is. It's a really small bowl and dull looking. Doesn't make the type of sound that you expect from a singing bowl. Returned it right away.Read More
I've had this bowl for a year now, and I must say it has brought true joy into my life. I'm a Reiki Master/Teacher and I use this bowl while giving Reiki treatments. It's tone is angelic, and blissful. Note Regarding Previous comment on this bowl: Sometimes I notice if I allow others to use the bowl it will not sing for them, when I first got it, I had to work with the bowl, and "make it my own"....once I did, it played amazingly. Perhaps putting your energy into the bowl will bring out more sound. This is an excellent addition to any space in your home or home office.Read More
I purchased 7 of these unique bowls as the main Christmas gift for each of our 6 adult children, and one for me. They were received in a very timely manner and in fantastic condition. There are only two things I would recommend a change on: one is the sticker "Handmade in Nepal" should be placed on the outside bottom of the bowl instead of the rim. I was afraid to use too strong of a chemical to remove it thinking it would affect the finish of the bowl, but the placement of the sticker affected the tone. The second item would be simple directions on how to operate the bowl. I went online and downloaded some instructions with pictures to enclose in the boxes for the kids. I did get my bowl to sing. It took some time and experimentation, but I did it. Very proud of myself. I'm now thinking of purchasing more bowls for extended family members and friends. If you're looking for something unique, handmade, and from another culture, try Nepal's Singing Bowls!Read More
My wife dropped a not-so-subtle hint she wanted a singing bowl; I played oblivious and went on the hunt for the perfect bowl. I did a lot of research and finally settled on this bowl after looking at at least a hundred others. My wife loves it! It has a deep, meditative tone and quality heft. Beautiful colors and overall we are very pleased with the purchase. Note: singing bowls work by running the wood around the outside of the bowl, maintain consistent pressure and the tone will build.Read More
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this item. The bowl is as described and has a pleasant tone. I wonder whether those who have given it negative reviews really know how to make it "sing".Read More
I have been looking for the "right" singing bowl at the right price for sometime; this fits the bill. I use it in meditation, and it sounds wonderful.Read More
