The artistic foundry of B. Podorozhny

Created in 1989 by a small team of craftsmen in Voronezh, Russia, our manufacture has been producing large bells and belfries of bronze according to the technology of ancient manual casting. It is only manual labor without any machine tools and other technological equipment that is used during the surface treatment of bells.

Our products

Now we offer you exclusive small size gift bells made of classic bell bronze on a leather handle. We are the only foundry that was able to cast a thin-walled small bell and achieve the unsurpassably long duration of its sound. It is fairly important to say that, presenting a small bell, you are not just giving someone a beautiful souvenir, but rather provide them with an original musical instrument.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Expert Council of the Artistic Foundry of B. Podorozhny thoroughly explores the topic of preserving and reviving the national traditions of Russian bell casting art.

The exclusive small-sized gift bells that we cast have a really distinct profile with a harmonious ratio of diameter, thickness and height which gives them their unique sonority. Our bells are high-quality musical instruments with their own voice and character.

The Foundry’s professional team consists of artists, engravers and foundry workers with the rich experience, delicate taste and exquisite execution, who perform the whole sequence of techniques according to traditional foundry technology.

In our production we use the classical bell bronze — an alloy of tin and copper. The surface treatment is performed in several steps, exclusively by hand using pneumatic tools and sand. The whole process is carried out manually without the usage of volume scanners and 3D printers. 

In order to give the bells matte finish we combine using modern appliances and authentic tools of ancient casters, such as natural abrasives or even something as simple as a wooden stick.

Founded in 1989 in Voronezh.


Bells models are made by an engraver
according to the artist's pencil sketches.

Bell facts

Scientific research of the bells acoustic effect is being conducted in many countries. Currently, numerous studies and observations have confirmed the beneficial effect of bell ringing on a person’s emotional and physical condition.

Bell chiming was used to greet distinguished guests, to honor the arrival of royalty or to express the common joy because of one’s wedding.

The bells call all people to come to the temple and give praise to God. They call for festive celebrations and honor the victorious heroes.

The ringing of bells warned about disasters, called on the people to defend their countries and greeted warriors who just returned from a battle.
