Quiet Bear's Little Flute Book
"The Bear Facts"
As you browse through my website you will see I make my flutes and walking staff flutes out of a variety of woods from all over the world. I have a fascination for wood, for they not only have their own characteristics from the outside, but as a piece is cut and the inside is revealed you get to see the Creator's handy work of colors and textures.
My flutes are a labor of love and my goal, as a full time flute maker, is to create flutes of high quality, craftsmanship, and resonance.
For those who feel creative, I offer the basic squared flute kit or the pre-shaped flute kit in the Western Red Cedar or Poplar woods. The flutes come pre-tuned and ready for you to do the final shaping and finishing.
Two of my favorite woods are the Alaskan Yellow Cedar and the 50,000 year old swamp Kauri. Both woods have a beautiful tonal quality, full voice, and are very responsive.
Over the years my unique antler blocks have become my signature. I hand craft each flute using only natural, non-toxic, environmentally safe products to seal and finish your flute. I then tune each flute to 440mz @ 72 degrees, sign, date and finish them off with my paw brand. It is then I believe the Creator puts the voice in them and they are ready for their jouney.
When you purchase a Quiet Bear flute you will truly own a hand crafted, one of a kind flute.
NATIVE AMERICAN FLUTES
"In many traditions a ceremony takes place where the flute is blessed, this way bringing it to life.
A healer's prayer and breath awaken the soul of the flute:"
"I am a hole in a flute that the breath of healing moves through,
The wood remembers the hands that carve it.
The hands that play it.
Hear our song."
