From his coconut husk hilltop gilbert gooney bird bamboo chime surveys his domain, his head bobbing up and down in the wind while a complement of hand-tuned bamboo chimes emit a mellow melody of tones. This fanciful hand-made chime is made from an array of natural materials. His body and tail are made from the coarse outer husk of a coconut shell with long coconut fibers serving as feather, natural fiber twine are used for knees, ankles and feet while a hand-carved and painted vulture-like head tops his bamboo-jointed neck. The gilbert chime hangs approximately 40" long in total length and his body measures approximately 14" x 10". Hand-made in bali. Every asli arts chime features the mellow, earth-inspired tones unique to resonating bamboo tubes. Each woodstock chime is hand-tuned by a trained artist-musician who whittles each tube to the perfect pitch, repeatedly tapping each bamboo tube as he carves until the sound is just right. Then our artisans select a range of tube sizes that when combined and touched by gentle breezes, create a deep resonating sound. Bamboo tubes emit notes based on size, large tubes produce lower tones and smaller tubes emit higher-pitched sounds. By hand-tuning each tube, then selecting a range of sizes, each chime produces a melody unique to itself. Asli arts is committed to producing innovative and quality home and garden decor products utilizing sustainable and recycled materials and the creative talents of southeast asian artists.
