Our hand crafted Kotobuki Cast Iron Wind Chime from Japan may be only 2 1/2" tall, but it's heavy duty feel and unique hand crafted manufacturer make this an exotic penguin indeed. The abundance of “Satetsu” (sand containing iron), “gantetsu” (rock containing iron), sand, and clay used in the manufacturing of molds and charcoal led to the birth of cast ironware production hundreds of years ago in the Iwate and Yamagata prefectures of Japan.  This tradition continues today with Kotobuki. Includes attached 4" long top loop for hanging and 5" long string attached to chime ringer for non-wind aided ringing.
