Overview

Time Bell Candle

The Time Bell Candle is a beautiful meditative tool to mark the passage of time both visually and sonically. Place the brass pins at various heights on the candlestick and as the wax burns down, the pins fall into the brass holder, striking the bowl, which rings like a bell (see video below).

Distinguished in appearance and sound, this provocative design is intended for contemplation rather than precision. Times can be estimated based on the duration of the candle but it is difficult to predict exactly when the bell will sound. A poetic reminder of the subjectivity of time. Perfect for mindfulness, study, or any other practice that requires periods of focus, the Time Bell Candle set comes with three brass pins, a small chipper to help set them in place, and two six-hour beeswax candle sticks (though any type of candle may be substituted).

Crafted using traditional Japanese metalworking techniques, this item is designed to measure moments for many years to come.
