Felczyńskis Bells started to appear in the world since 1808, when a foundryman - Michał Felczyński established a great bell-foundry in Kałusz nearby Lwów. His son, also Michał, continued his father’s work, developing his professional skills for his son Franciszek to inherit the workshop and had not disappoint his clients who trusted already renowned company. Franciszek’s sons - Ludwik, Michał, Kajetan and Jan – have also become foundrymen. Jan’s son, Tadeusz, as the most skilful foundryman, took it upon himself to establish and start the first in Silesia Felczyńskis’ bell-foundry. It is upon this historical aegis that his son, Zbigniew, Jan’s grandson continues his father’s work in Taciszów. Felczyński Brothers Bell-foundry has become the most famous bell-foundry in Poland. Jan Felczyński’s grandson, Zbigniew, remained faithful his family tradition and casts bells in TACISZÓW in Silesia that are known and admired equally world-wide as his ancestors’ works.

We decorate them according to our Clients’ wish, we may make style ornaments matching The Church’s décor, and The Saint’s image, the bell is devoted to, may be repeated e.g. from the altar’s representation. Images put on the bells are uniquely sculptured for the needs of the mould that is currently made and will never be repeated in another bell. This does not influence the cost of the cast. Our bells may be called works of handicraft. Six-generation Felczyński foundrymen family has handed down all secrets that make cast bells we make are perfect and work impeccably.

        The sound secrets are comprised in the shape of their "rib”. This beautiful musical instrument comprises even 50 different tones, whilst the characteristic side tones ring from prime in lower octave intervals, upper octave, major third and perfect fifth. It is a challenge for a foundryman to make in a bells set the same harmony be heard as the one that provides the single bell tone. The primary tone is determined by a master foundryman already in the bells’ shape. The precisely drawn "rib”, according to canons of art is transferred onto the metal pattern. The mould will be made from clay with use of this pattern. While casting a bell, liquid bronze heated up to 1200 °C is poured into a mould and this is how a bell is born.
