About this project
"Orin" to enjoy "Saba Ri Orin's sound" that resonates with people more closely and freely
That is "LinNe Myo " .
When you tap it gently, you will hear a clear tone and a beautiful finish.
I want many people who spend their busy days to freely enjoy the sound of the bell bells in order to create a little rich time and to capture their hearts. That's why I joined Makuake.
The only color that comes from Saba Osamu
The material used is "Sahari" , a combination of copper and tin.
With the traditional technique "baking mold casting" using traditional firewood and the mixing ratio of the cell that has been passed down from generation to generation.
By taking advantage of the characteristics of the material, we are producing a unique color.
In everyday life, a new form of tone that makes you want to listen a little is born.
The clear tone and beautiful lingering sound are close to your feelings and create a slightly rich time.
Tones played in various scenes.
I hope the sounds you enjoy somewhere today will resonate.
Create rich times in busy days
There are various feelings depending on the person, such as "somewhere nostalgic", "feeling lonely", and "changing feelings". Find your favorite color, and enjoy yourself by taking in the color of your own life.
The color of the bell bells snuggles up to the person and creates a little rich time in various scenes of the day.
For switching between private and work
For those who are teleworking or who are busy with work, listening to the tone will switch between work time and private time.
At the beginning and end of the day
As a daily routine tone, such as waking up in the morning, peace before good night, and switching feelings before departure and when returning home.
Before coffee time or reading
As an opportunity to listen to the tone and feel good, enjoy coffee, read a book, and create a calm time.
To accompany meditation and yoga
As a tool for meditation and yoga.
For daily prayers
As a tone for casual daily prayer, or as a tone for creating a new form of prayer.
Easy to use and a mechanism to concentrate on the tone,
Design that can be placed anywhere
・ The place to put the bell is decided so that you don't have to worry about putting the bell after hitting the ori and making a sound. And it also has a mechanism to stick with a magnet.
・ Shape, theme and tone
There is a theme in the shape of Riori Saba, hou (refresh),
You can choose from three types: sui (concentration) and enn (relax).
* Since each item is handmade, there are individual differences in tone even if the shape is the same.
You can choose the color of Kumihimo from four colors: mustard, mustard, rat, and peach.
The craftsmen who have inherited the traditional techniques of more than 190 years since the establishment will only produce the "tones" that they are satisfied with! !!
"Traditional techniques" and "materials" inherited for the tone
"Lin Ne Myo" uses traditional techniques cultivated with a history of more than 190 years since its establishment.
We specialize in making shrines and temples called Narumono Shinto Buddhist altars and Buddhist altars and Buddhist altars that are used at home.
It is made in Kyoto, which is one of the few in Japan.
From mold making to finishing, we will make one by one. The material used is "Sahari", a combination of copper and tin. The characteristics of the material are brought to life by the casting method "baking mold casting" that uses the mixing ratio of the cell that has been passed down from generation to generation and the traditional firewood, and the color is not strong.
Tone material: "Sahari"
Sabari refers to an alloy in which copper contains a large amount of tin, and has been used in Shosoin's Imperial Treasure in ancient times. It is also called "Kyodo" because of its good sound and tone. It has long been believed that the tone of Sabari has the power to dispel and purify demons.
・ Ignite the furnace and melt copper and tin to make Sabari.
"The state of the furnace that melts Sabari"
・ In LinNe, in order to improve the tone and finish, the blending ratio of the researched and inherited workshop is made harder than general Sabari.
"A state of pouring Sabari melted into a mold into a mold"
Make a tone: Make a mold
We will make a mold for pouring the melted Sabari. One mold is required for each mold and can only be used once.
・ First, knead cast soil, clay, and rice husks to form a core (medium size), dry it in the sun, and then bake it.
"Unbaked core (medium size)"
-Use soil, clay, and graphite to coat the surface of the core (medium size) and main mold (outer type) to determine the size.
"A state of coating the core"
・ Combine the core and the main mold, apply clay, clay, and rice husks with kneaded soil, clay, and rice husks so that they will not come off, and dry them in the sun.
Make a tone: Casting
・ Arrange the dried molds in the kiln and slowly unglazed them using firewood.
"A state of burning firewood in a kiln and baking a mold"
・ At the same time, copper and tin are melted and mixed to make Sabari.
The temperature of Sabari is about 1300 degrees.
"How to remove impurities from Sabari that has been mixed and melted"
・ Remove the baked mold from the kiln and let it cool.
"Look at the mold taken out of the kiln and the color of the center to determine how cold it is."
・ Cast Sabari into the mold at the same timing as the temperature of the mold and the melting condition of Sabari.
"The timing is adjusted and Sabari is poured into the mold."
Creating a tone: Processing
Bake the "orin" taken out of the mold in a heated kiln until it turns bright red, and then put the orin in water and quench it to soften the bell bells. When it is blunted, the lingering sound does not sound. If it is not annealed, the bell will crack in the cutting process of the next process.
"A state of baking a cast bell in a furnace"
First, rough-cut the black skin (surface) of the casting (orin) with a manual lathe.
"A state of shaving annealed bell with a manual lathe"
After that, finish it with a potter's wheel and finish it cleanly.
"A state of scraping the finish using the potter's wheel"
This is the process of returning the softened bell bells to a hard state. Bake the bells on a heated iron plate. The color of the bell bell will change when it is baked, so adjust the degree of baking according to the change in color. Remove from the iron plate at the timing of baking and let it cool slowly and naturally. (Slow cooling)
"How to bake a bell that has been shaved"
・ Sound inspection
Is the true sound not blurred, or is the lingering sound firmly? We will check the sound of tapping the bells in many places and inspect whether the sound is as good as Nanjo Kobo.
"It looks like you are checking the tapping tone many times."
Polish the "orin" with an abrasive using a potter's wheel, and coat each one with wax to finish.
* How to hit to fully enjoy the tone
Riorin Saba is made of a very hard material, so if you hit it a little harder, you will hear a clear tone and a long finish. Also, if you hit it with a stick so that you aim at the part near the edge of the orin, it will be easier to make a good tone.
* Handling precautions
The orin part has a special tone, so the tin content is increased to increase the hardness. If dropped or given a strong impact, it may crack or crack. Even if there is no damage to the appearance, the tone will not be heard, so please handle it with care.
* About aging of metal parts
The appearance (color) of the origami part changes over time due to the nature of the alloy. Wax is coated to prevent sudden changes, but if you polish it with an abrasive such as "Buddhist polish", the coating will come off and the color will easily change, so please do not use it. In addition, the frame that hangs the bell will change over time.
If time passes with fingerprints attached, the fingerprints may come out. Do not touch the metal surface with your bare hands as much as possible, and if you get fingerprints or dust, wipe it gently with a soft, dry cloth. We hope that you will enjoy the gradually changing colors at hand.
It will be shipped sequentially from the beginning of October 2021.
How to use the funds
We will continue to use the funds you support for new manufacturing and for the next project.
Introducing the performer and thinking about the brand "LinNe"
We, LinNe, are a brand created from the desire to enjoy the clear tone and beautiful finish of Riori Saba more closely and freely in our daily lives.
We are developing products that match modern lifestyles, proposing the use of tones, and transmitting tones, making use of the traditional techniques and materials that we have inherited from generation to generation.
Thoughts on LinNe
We want more people to know the clear tone and beautiful finish of "Orin" made from the traditional technique inherited from generation to generation and the material "Sabari" blended in the workshop!
And I want you to freely enjoy the sound of the bell in your daily life! I have a feeling.
There are traditional techniques and materials to create a particular tone, and as a result of pursuing the tone, the techniques and materials have been inherited.
By launching LinNe and proposing to enjoy the tones for various purposes, the enjoyment of new tones that are not bound by the genre will expand and interest will be gained. I think.
And I would like to be reborn as a maker of Saba Ri Orin's tone from a maker of Saba Ri's sounding gods and Buddhist implements.
Please enjoy the charm of the sound of Riori Saba in your daily life.

Risk & Challenge
Please note that each part of the bell is made by hand, so there are individual differences in size, shape, and tone, and it may differ from the photo. The appearance design of the product under development may change. We are currently adjusting the manufacturing schedule based on the number assuming that the project will be successful, but if there is an application for support purchase that exceeds expectations, delivery will be delayed due to circumstances in the manufacturing process or unavoidable circumstances associated with delivery work. There may be cases. If there is a change in the content described on the project page as described above, we plan to share it in the activity report etc. as soon as possible. Lastly, we will do our best to make everyone who has picked up LinNe Myo happy, so please support us.
