A Warm Welcome

Some like their arrivals heralded with the sound of trumpets, some prefer something a little more soothing. Beautifully hand crafted from maple, padauk and canary wood, this ethereal harp by Bob Murphy emits a trio of tranquil notes as the hanging mallets hit the wire. The natural wood grain creates a uniquely organic instrument, while the fluid silhouette creates an eye-catching display when hung. Hang on your door so every visitor gets a warm welcome. Handmade in Grass Valley, California.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.


Made in California

When Bob Murphy retired as a house builder, he repurposed his woodworking skills to craft door harps. “Now I make much more expensive sawdust with all the exotic hardwoods I use,” he jokes. To create that sawdust—and, of course, the stunning instruments that welcome guests with warm tones—he turns to his studio’s heavy-duty machines. Those multitasking behemoths “keep me motivated to design and create new items each year,” he says. And if the tools ever fail to move him, there are the views. Recently, the California-based artist relocated the equipment from his shop to his mountain home on five country acres. “It gets up to a foot of snow in the winter with a 50-mile, 180-degree view of surrounding pine and oak trees,” he says. “That is inspiring by itself.”
