Recently I had the great pleasure to deliver this Commissioned Flute to a home in one of my favorite places to be… Aspen Colorado. In fact this is one of two flutes that I made for customers in Aspen that we delivered during our visit just a few weeks ago.
Crafted from Alaskan Yellow Cedar this flute featured Sapodilla Totem Rails and a Mustang fetish also crafted from a piece of Sapodilla. For this project we crafted a hand made cabochon made from a remnant piece of Catlinite (Sacred Pipestone) that came from a pipe project I had been working on. Hand shaped and finished to a statin sheen this stone was finally bezel set in Sterling Silver and then inlaid into the body of the flute.
The stands are one of our new stand types that are both functional and simplistic in design. For this project these stand cradles were also made from Alaskan Yellow Cedar. The bottom of each stand has a felt pad to protect stand and surface they are set on and the cradle area also has felt padding to help protect the flute itself. These are very cool little stands that you can set on any surface for display without having to do any mounting.
This was a beautiful sounding flute tuned in the key of D# because of its larger bore. The long aesthetics of my hand crafted flute designs make for wonderful functional art displays while also possessing the soft wonderful voice that an Alaskan Yellow Cedar crafted flute delivers.
I have started shaping a new flute crafted from Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar that will be painted Acrylic Black just like the image in the header of this post. This flute however will be about 22 inches in length and because of it’s 7/8″ bore it will more than likely be in the F or G range.
The Totem will be a Mustang and the Totem Rails will be crafted from American Maple just like it’s big brother. This Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute like the Big Red one finished earlier this year will be a sister flute to it. All of my painted flutes are finished on the inside as the outside so that there is consistency throughout.
Price point for this finished flute will be the same as the red flute at $285.00 plus shipping. If you have interest in this flute call or Text (307) 690-0427 or email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
We just added a new sound clip to this recently completed Alaskan Yellow Cedar Raven Themed flute. This flute was completed for a customer recently and we wanted you to be able to hear how beautiful of a voice Alaskan Yellow Cedar can deliver.
This flute is now available for a new home… Click Here to visit this flute on our website. Also available for Commission – I can build one similar on a Commission Basis. I really like this flute but we can make it your own by adding your vision to the project. Let me hear from you if you like how it sounds … or not…
