is nothing quite like watching a simple piece of ancient wood slowly
being reborn into a flute with personality and spirit. To me, it is
like watching the spirit of the tree return to life with a smile.
It has always amazed me how beautiful and elegant a flute can become
at the hands of a good carver. Each spirit end has its own personality
and, if I do my job correctly, it will become a part of yours. Like
the block or fetish, the spirit end can be representative of your
inner spirit, or a totem animal or being, that reflects your personality.
That's why each flute is created as a team effort with the flute maker,
working with you to create your personal dream flute. I have carved
many ends such as eagles, bears, wolves, horses, ravens, ducks, elk,
or birds using varied methods of carving, burning, and painting to
achieve the end result. I look forward to helping you capture your
spirit in a timeless piece of playable art much like the North Coast
Indian totem poles of days past. Your spirit and story preserved forever
