On 4th April 2014 at 3:00 p.m. Jan Felczyński Bell Foundry cast “St. John Paul II”, a bell for Wawel Royal Cathedral in Cracow. It weighs 500 kg and has the ring of A. The bell has been funded by canons council of the Wawel Royal Cathedral led by the parish priest Zdzisław Sochacki. “St. John Paul II” joined other bells of Silver Bell Tower including Herman from 1271.

It is covered with sophisticated adornment and two bas-reliefs, one of pope St. John Paul II and the second of Virgin Mary of Piekary. After the consecration it was hung and supplied with advanced automation from Company Rduch Czernica.

Kamień Śląski. Three newly cast brass bells for an antique German set

In August 2012 Jan Felczyński Bell Foundry cast three brass bells as a complementation to an existing set of German bells for the Sanctuary of St. Hyacinth in Kamień Śląski. The project involved tuning new bells to gain a perfect match to five other already hanging. An independent Czech campanologist, Mr. Petr Janda, who evaluated the project from acoustic point of view was impressed with their quality. We would like to thank Company Rduch Czernica for providing automation system for all eight bells.
