Knoller

A knoller is also known as a bell toller, and I feel a connection to this, partly because I'm often called "Belle" by my friends and family, but also because I love the chime of a bell carrying through a public space. The solemn notions that accompany lonely bell-tollers add a kind of mysticism to this old trade, and I think it's a sort of two-parter, not only wrapping in the toller, but the bell maker – what an artiste! That sonorous chime has softly pulled me from getting lost in a long lunch in a far-flung town square, or heralded the drinks break at a French flea market all too often. That sound is one often taken for granted and an art form that endures, marking the hours passing with a musical flourish.
