Each handmade Oetken Gong has its own individual range of tonality and feel, all while retaining the quality of the classic style. Although Broder Oetken is well known as one of the current gongmasters in the world, he says he is constantly developing, honing and perfecting his gongmaking process. Like his mentor, Walter Meyer, he intends to pass his knowledge to his apprentices to ensure that this rare handicraft continues.
Vesta is the Roman goddess of the home and family, usually depicted and represented by fire. It's also the brightest asteroid visible from Earth.
