In 1993, John Stannard began hammering bronze. On the island of Bali he studied forging briefly in the fire pits. The education was more spiritual than intellectual. In 2006, a lifetime of listening, followed by a long and focused research period paid off.The small studio of metal smiths headed by Stannard, unveiled a new line of hand hammered stick-playable hybrid instruments in 2006 to a rave response. "All our pieces are stick playable, very tough and are individual works of art. Their bronze alloys are all cast, rolled and hand hammered in a proprietary process."
