BRANCH FLUTES

 

INTRO BRANCH FLUTES STANDARD FLUTES MINI FLUTES WALKING STICKS


Our branch flutes are made all by hand....This means we don't use power tools to cut the wood , carve the bore , or shape the flute. We try to create instruments with spirit , just using our hands and feelings. We try to do our best , from the beginning to the end. Just take a branch mother eath have gifted us , or a piece of wood wich want to live again , and if it wants to become a flute , listen to it...


Here is our branchs hunting place

And here, it's the entrance of the gathering place...

Our prey...A flute waiting to be made

Gathered branchs...(some on this pictures are from forest , and some are dirftwood from a lake.)

This is how the branchs are split first...

Some tools waiting their branch...

...And the hands giving them what they need

A branch , cut in half and gouged by hand...

This is how the holes are burned...

The two halves of the flute are glued and clamped together...



Or attached

Then t he future flute is shaped , waiting for the holes to be made...

...And here is our jerky drying...The leather straps waiting for a flute...
