Bronze Wind and Door Bells

US Bells

US Bells offers original designs of bronze bells, hardware, and original sculpture by Richard Fisher. From small dinner bells to large estate bells, all are hand cast at our foundry in Prospect Harbor, located in Down East Maine.

“Our bells can remain outdoors year-round, through winter blizzards and quiet summer breezes. As the weather changes, so too does their song, which, for me, becomes a vibrant reflection of our living world.” —Richard Fisher

We welcome you to visit our website, where you can see and hear all of our bells and view our casting process.

Shoreline Tie-Dye Tote

Sea Bags

With this tote on your shoulder, you can instantly imagine yourself at the shore. The design was inspired by the process of tie-dying, which yields the subtle gradations in tones that emerge to represent breaking waves on a sandy beach. You’ll be impressed with the capacity — it’s a family-size carryall for the beach, sports events, and travel. The rugged handles wrap around the bag for added support, and the recycled sailcloth has water-resistant properties. Handcrafted in Portland, Maine.
