Woodstock Chimes VGCM Victorian Garden Chime, Meadow
Charming earth-toned fliers turn your garden into a summertime meadow. This wind chime produces joyful tones reminiscent of distant church bells. It pays tribute to a period when gardens and meadows were treasured and craftsmen created decorative metalwork to adorn them. The essence of a summertime meadow is represented with the nature design of the top piece and the cast metal clappers of hummingbirds, butterflies, dragonflies and turquoise-colored beads. The rust finish offers a natural beauty that warms up the steel elements with an earthy, brown color and an interesting, weathered texture. The meadow is abuzz with the activity of the many creatures that come and go. But for us it's a lazy place where we can relax and enjoy the sunshine. In 1979, Grammy Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane still develop the chimes today as part of their family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Woodstock Chimes - The World's Favorite Windchime.
