Beaten Singing Bowls: Engraved or hand hammered singing bowls are made by way of a complete hand hammering process. Every single singing bowl is carefully hand beaten, which requires several steps to complete the process and shaped it into a perfect hand hammered singing bowl. In the process, first the various composition of metals, as raw materials (copper, tin, zinc, iron, lead, gold and silver) are melted in a furnace, according to manufacturing requirements, such as for the making of bronze singing bowls or for seven metal singing bowls. The hot melted metal is removed from the furnace and poured into a mould to prepare a metal disc for the various sizes and weights. Then, the round metal moulds are cut into round metal discs in required size and thickness. After that, these discs are hand beaten or hammered, following precise measurement, and then categorised according to weight and size. Regarding the hand hammering process of singing bowls, 4 to 5 metal discs are piled one upon the other, and then heated to red hot. The red hot metal sheets are hammered by a group of expert artisans, for as long as the heat remains in the metal, and then again processed to red-hot heating, for a continued beating process. This heating and beating of the bundled and piled up metal discs continues until a desired shape and size is achieved. (That is why the hammered or carved singing bowls will be proportionately different in size and diameter with each individual singing bowl.) During the hammering process of these singing bowls, the metal disc can only be hammered during the time of being red hot, while it remains soft and flexible. Because when the metal gets colder, it will loose its softness and flexibility, which in turn makes the metal brittle and thus the bowl could be ruined. The reason behind this intensive working process is that the metal content (bronze or seven metals mixture) is very sensitive to heat and gets harder when it looses its hot temperature and will get cracks and break. 

After completion of shaping the desired bowls, the individual work will start. At this stage, every bowl is brought into uniform shape and size, and once more, this can only be done during the red burning heating and beating process. After finalising the shape and size, more hammering is done for a final fine tuning and shaping of the singing bowls. Each individual singing bowl is then chiselled and scoured for the finishing touch, both inside and out.
