BOWL TYPE: PEDESTAL, Goblet / Chalice

PEDESTAL bowls are also called CUP or CHALICE bowls. They are made in two parts: the bowl itself, and a circular metal band, or pedestal, on which the bowl is permanently mounted on top. The bowls have a rounded base and need the pedestal to stand upright. They are quite bulbous. The middle point has a larger diameter than the rim. The rims close a little at the top or are straight and vary in thickness. In the older ones, the pedestal is fused to the bottom of the bowl. On the other hand, those made more recently are soldered.


Some antique bowls have fine lines and dotted figures on the outside of the top rim. Often these are drawings of fish, peacocks, or lotus flowers. Usually, the rim finish is flat and smooth, although sometimes they have grooves. Older bowls usually differ from newer ones in having more stable, cleaner, richer in harmonics, and longer-lasting sounds.


PEDESTAL bowls are easy to play and have a good sonority. They are suitable for use in all types of therapeutic work, as well as in concerts and sound baths. To play them, they need a stable and hard surface, which is why they cannot be placed on the body. In addition, the vibration is transmitted mainly by the bowl, not by the pedestal. However, by holding the pedestal in the hand, they are very easy to handle around the body and can be used for cleansing energy fields of both people and spaces.
