Story Behind the Art:
Forty-seven year old Bir Bahadur Bishwakarma started to work at the tender age of 9. After being involved in his ancestral occupation of copper production for more than 25 years, he undertook training at Balaju Mechanical Centre. 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 spread his skills among his community, thereby providing jobs to other coppersmiths who come from the low-income sector of the economy. This has resulted in the improved economic condition of the community as a whole.

  • Singing bowl is nice

    It is nice, I changed out the mallet for one with a covered end and I like the sound a bit more. I think it works well, especially for the price.

  • Love this bowl

    I love this bowl! I wanted to be able to give it a 5 star rating, but couldn't because the paint on the stand was flaking off on the bottom of it when received. I just sprayed a little black paint on it, and it was fine, even for giving as a gift. But, I know this would put most people off. When buying a new item, you expect it to be perfect. I bought this at a clearance price, though, and felt I got way more than the price I paid for it. The bowl itself was an excellent quality. I love it, and the sound and tone is makes is wonderful. I was very pleased and may end up buying one for myself. Was too bad about the stand, though.

  • Damaged, accoutrements low quality

    The bowl is okay. I was surprised by how small and heavy it is--it's about as wide as my hand without the fingers is long, but it's definitely copper. The surface has many scratches, some very noticeable, and also is tarnished. The wooden thing it comes with is rough and not pretty. The stand has peeling black paint and doesn't sit with all legs on the ground at one time. The bowl's design is low contrast, with the dark tarnished metal against the black design on it. All in all, buy something else. Some of the quality issues may be related to the fact that it was in a box in a smaller box with no padding or other packing materials meant to protect it.
