Make the water dance and the singing bowl sing and jump
This Chinese water singing bowl has its origins way back in the Han Dynasty. It is cast in bronze and, when struck correctly, can produce resonant waves and splashes that impress not only as a physical phenomenon. The bottom of the bowl is decorated with Chinese dragons.
The water singing bowl is ideal for sound experiences with children, e.g. in kindergarten or primary school. It is also a beautiful decoration in the garden or on the terrace.
- Place the singing bowl on a solid surface and fill it to the top half with water.
- Moisten your hands and now begin to rub the two handles.
- It creates waves on the water surface, which can splash up to 50 cm high depending on technique and skill. At the same time pleasant sounds arise, which are generated by vibration.
Weight: ca. 2.3 kg
Diameter: ca. 43 cm
Color: The patina of the water sound bowls can be greenish (as shown in the picture) or bluish in color, depending on the batch.
Tip: Playing the bowls requires some practice and often does not succeed the first time. It is important to moisten the hands with water and to develop a feeling for the right pressure on the rubbing surfaces. Once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy.
See for yourself and watch the following Youtube video explaining how to use the water sound bowl.
