THE FORGE Commissions





Custom Made Singing Bowls, Bells, Gongs and other Metal Sounding Instruments



The makers at Resounding Earth offer a unique sound alchemy

to craft instruments to personal specifications and intentional alignment


A wide range of instruments, singing bowls, hand bells, tingsha bells, tubular bells and gongs large and small are made bespoke, by commission and through personal attunement.
People from all walks, sound healers and percussionists, contemporary musicians, yoga teachers, kindergarten teachers and those who have a meditative practice are amongst those who have acquired and commissioned instruments from Resounding Earth.

What’s involved in commissioning an instrument?

To have a sounding instrument made specifically for you is like a blessing from the wider universe to assist in your own coherence with body and soul. A singing bowl that is crafted for you is made in total co-creation with you even though you are not physically present. Profound transformation occurs with the metal and so with you. This is a gift for your life…one through which the vibrations and frequencies continue to work with you in your daily living.

Like being gifted the song of your heart. You will be invited to meet with one of our highly skilled and sensitive makers for ‘an attunement’ session.
It is here that you will have a chance to consider what kind of instrument you are asking for. Is this a personal sound companion or a community project?
Is there a healing or transformation being asked for through the making?


Is this a gift for you or another?


Through hammering, firing and working with the metal and your intention, the metal is imbued with the resonance of a new frequency. The agreement to enter into a commission process is a relationship of trust and each of the makers has their own particular way of working.

This is a specialised service of co-creating singing bowls with you as a healing alchemical journey of deep immersion and transformation. This can be likened to a distant healing process and can last weeks or months depending on your process and the shared journey.

The instrument begins to be birthed from the moment it is conceived by you. The dialogue begins with you approaching us with your inquiry.

These instruments can serve as..

  • A vibrational assistant and supporter on your journey to wholeness

  • A powerful healing gift for tool

  • A piece of tonal craft work that adds to your life and beyond, supporting others

  • A sound sculpture for bringing balance and tonal frequency to a particular environment – outdoor or indoor

  • An aid to meditation and relaxation

  • Allies in the process of crossing thresholds – the journey into the unknown



Prices for custom made instruments are dependent upon a number of variables:

  • The size of instrument

  • The metal used (phosphor bronze, brass or copper) – phosphor bronze is more expensive

  • The thickness of the metal (anything between 1.6mm and 3mm)

  • The depth of the bowl

  • And the time given to the crafting and alchemical healing process.


Cost starts at a minimum of €170 -€190 for a small bowl (9cm diameter at start) with this process of a healing journey. Estimated Costs for larger bowls as follows:

  • 10 – 13cm bowls (diameter at start) from €200 – €400*

  • 14 – 17cm bowls (diameter at start) from €400 – €600*

  • 18 – 20cm bowls (diameter at start) from €600 – €800
  • Up to 30cm larger bowls available (diameter at start) – up to €1600)*

*Depending on size, choice of material , thickness etc.
i.e. brass and copper bowls are generally a little less expensive re metal price and work,
bronze – being harder and more expensive
nickel copper – harder and metal price highest
