What is titanium gong art?
In addition to being a fine art, the suspended gong is also used as a musical instrument. It produces a sound that is considered more pleasant than most percussion instruments. The tone of the suspended gong may be altered by striking it with an object. This gives it an advantage over many other percussion instruments because the timbre can be varied in such a way to be conducive to different styles of music. For example, if you wanted to play rock ‘n’ roll music you would want to use a hard surface like wood or plastic; but if you were playing classical music then you would want something softer like felt or leather.
How is it made?
The process to create a titanium gong is not a straightforward one. It takes some time to acquire the raw materials, prepare them for use, and begin the process of suspending them in an airtight chamber. For those who want to make their own suspended gongs, this process can take up to two weeks if they start from scratch. However, if you already have some suspended gongs made of other materials that you would like to convert into titanium, then it can be done in about two days. All you need to do is place the aluminum, copper or bronze suspended gongs inside the vacuum chamber and seal it shut. Afterwards, you will need to pump out all of the air before inserting hydrogen gas in through tubes inserted into various points around the gong. After waiting 10 minutes for any possible bubbles to rise up and escape, introduce argon gas at 20psi until no more bubbles appear. Finally, lower the pressure back down again until everything has been sealed off properly with metal welds that are heated by plasma torches so that there are no leaks whatsoever.

You might be wondering how to get your hands on some titanium gong art. To find out, you can go to a company called the Gongs Unlimited Inc. They have a wide selection of beautifully suspended gongs. Titanium is a wonderful metal for this kind of work because it is durable yet lightweight.
How can I get my hands on some?
Suspended gongs can be found in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. They are available for purchase at most art supply stores. The size of the gong will depend on what you are looking to create, but smaller ones are perfect for individual pieces of jewelry. For larger pieces of jewelry or sculptures, a heavier gong is necessary. Suspended gongs are also used in sound healing ceremonies as they have a calming effect on the listener while being played.
