The Zaphir Chimes are the successors of the Shanti's that haven't been manufactured since 2010.
They are built to sound identical to the Shanti's.
Handmade by artisans in France.
Zaphir Wind Chimes are hand crafted and precisely tuned musical instruments, available in five beautiful melodies and many vibrant colours.
Eight chords of different lengths, are welded with silver into a metal plate at the base of a resonance tube. Through precise tuning of the different tone ranges, the harmonic progression of tones starts switching into overtones, in a circling almost endless flow.
A specific oil paint-marbling technique known as ‘oil-paint on water’ has been developed by Atelier Zaphir, achieving a more natural and refined colour, giving the Zaphir chime it's unique and vibrant design.
Working together with several artists and providers, Zaphir chimes are crafted from mostly natural materials. A finishing layer of Eco-label varnish is applied to protect from the weather and the wooden wind catcher is wax coated.
Since handmade there may be slight variations in colour and pattern.
