As long as I have lived in Wyoming I have made Native American Style flutes, Wyoming influenced one of a kind jewelry, custom fetish designs and I have built some amazing commissioned pipe projects. My view of Wyoming is also shared through my photography as I see it through the lens of a camera. It is these things that bring purpose and joy to my life and as with all things time seems to find a way to erode away at them. Jacksonholetim.com over time has become more of a store selling parts to others who seek the knowledge to build or learn to build the wind instrument known to most as the Native American Flute rather than a platform to share my art. I have spent countless hours crafting flute parts and sharing what took me years to learn which is to share the knowledge of how to build one of these fine instruments. I have enjoyed sharing what I have learned but now it;s time to get back to the genesis of all this.
As I get older I find less and less time to actually do what it is I want… no feel called to do which is to be a builder of flutes, pipes and share my visions of Wyoming through the lens of a camera. As I approach 60 years of age I find that time is now my biggest enemy with less and less of it at hand. I want to go back to my craft and create flutes that others will find joy in playing. So from this post forward you will see a change in our menu choices and the elimination of flute parts, wood stocks and other flute making supplies and I will begin to focus back on creating, crafting and designing new projects for others. I am actively interviewing for new commissions for flute and pipe projects. Because of the time each commission project consumes I have a limit amount of project slots I can offer each year. If you want to open a dialog for a new project that I can do for you simply reach out and let’s talk.
