The Iskra sound sculpture, or handpan, is the result of an entire year researching and studying how the original sound sculptures from Switzerland were created.

Most, if not all, handpans on the market currently utilize traditional steel pan building and tuning methods.  This is where the Iskra sets itself apart from the rest of the pack.

Careful selection of the perfect alloy of raw steel, coupled with the proper gas nitride treatment, results in a raw form with ideal mechanical properties for creating a sound sculpture using the unique tuning methods devised by the Swiss crafters.  By adhering to these methods, a true distinct difference from any other handpans can be felt under the hands and heard in the ears.
