The flute continues to take its path to final form. Here is an updated picture during the finishing stages of this flute. Here you can see how the Maple rails and totem look against the jet black finish. The Elk Antler Cabochon is about done and ready to set into the flute body. This flute in person is beautiful. This piece will be available for purchase at the 2018 Western Design Conference the first week of September held in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Would love to hear any feedback! Enjoy.
I just received the picture you see here sent to me from one of my clients who I recently finished a flute for. She attended the Phoenix Indian Center 70th Anniversary Benefit Concert held this pas Friday and she shared with me how much she enjoyed the event. During one of Tony’s performances she noticed that the flute he was playing looked familiar and thus took this picture and sent it to me. Yes this is a flute that I crafted for Tony and gave it to him earlier this year. It is always humbling when I see someone playing a flute that I made.
