Ryan, I just wanted to tell you again that those bowls are really exquisite. I took them over to my yoga studio last nite because I’m offering a sound healing and wasn’t sure if the bowls would ‘fill the space’, or if I would need a ‘harder’ mallet. LOL — they are possibly even more amazing in a large space than in my small healing room. I’m getting somewhat better at allowing them to sing, although everyone seems to enjoy the simple ‘tapping’ of them with the yarn covered mallet. Thanks again!
