I pour my heart into every flute I make. Each piece is wrought entirely by hammer & hand from raw precious metals – without any machining. The result is a unique musical experience of unprecedented look, feel and sound.
Here is a gallery of past & present work. Each of these flutes represents the culmination of 30 years of design and handwork and over 40 years of flutemaking experience. The first section are my flutes, futher down you’ll find flutes by other companies that I have decorated.
