Dryad Flutes

adopting a dryad flute

Respect for the art of branch flute making encourages consideration for the trees first.  For the Earth first.  When out gathering a branch for a flute, I'll open my heart to the spirit of the tree and its community, expressing gratitude and appreciation for their existence, balance and beauty.  And only then ask if there's a branch that might want to sing.  And if there is, I'll offer another prayer of gratitude before gathering the branch.  If there isn't, I will enjoy and appreciate another opportunity for communion with the web of life.

This connection and relationship with the spirit of the tree continues through the flute making process, asking the tree how she might make the flute, given my hands, ears and eyes to work with.  And if creation grants that our collaboration finds a spirit-filled, high quality voice in the branch, wonderful!  I'll then take detailed photos and record a video sound sample to offer up on a web page.  If someone is enchanted enough by this one of a kind branch flute and wants to adopt her, the flute has found a home.  A 15 day return policy is offered with the flute along with a lifetime warranty.  

Dryad Flutes are sold at the higher end of the pricing scale.  This is due to the difficulty of the solid bore design I use and the time, care and attention required in making concert/recording quality flutes from one-of-a-kind tree branches - one at a time.  I simply cannot mass produce/market these flutes.  They are intended as individual works of healing art, made sustainably and in good relationship with the diverse web of life on this one, beautiful, blue-green planet we all share.

If this way of working and trading is acceptable to you, your interest in Dryad Flutes is greatly appreciated and I'll be happy to include you in email notices when completed flutes are available for adoption.  These will be offered directly from this website through PayPal purchasing, first come first served.  
Please send me an email if you'd like to be notified.

Wishing you health, peace and many natural blessings,

Jon Sherman
