Due to the nature of how I work, I am unable to accept orders or special requests for flutes. My vision is to give voice to the trees and ask how they might make the flute. This respect for our natural community, listening to nature's ongoing inspirations and teachings, is important to me -- from the gathering of the branch, through the flute making process and in how the finished flute is made available to the public.
When a flute is completed, I'll take detailed photos and record a video sound sample to offer up on a sales page. This is similar to how many artists present their work on the walls of galleries. If a patron is then inspired by this art and wants to adopt an available branch flute, that flute has found a home.
The price I ask for a flute may seem at the higher end of the scale. This is due to the difficulty of the solid bore method I use and the time, care and attention required in making concert/recording quality flutes from one-of-a-kind tree branches. One at a time. I cannot visit the lumber store to simply purchase wood. And I refuse to mass produce my flutes to lower the price through quantity marketing. Each flute I craft is intended as an individual work of nature art, made sustainably and in good relations with this beautiful, living planet we all share.
If this way of working and trading is acceptable to you, I'll be happy to include you in email notifications when a completed flute is available for adoption. Due to the care and attention I give to each branch flute, and the need to make these flutes in harmony and balance with my life and the natural communities where I source the branches, I cannot say how often a flute might be available.
