Didgeridoo #309


 

As you can see this is such a unique and colorful stalk. I found this on a camping trip in one of the most beautiful parts of AZ. I ended up collecting a lot of really old stalks that had huge splits and cracks but when I knocked on them had such amazing resonance and forms that I collected them anyway. I have recently been working a ton on these older ones that seem to be gone forever but instead are turning into these amazing and unique instruments. This one has such amazing symmetrical curves and at one of its curves it split and scarred really badly but actually turned to a really hard inside the split. I was able to fill this with some hard to find sleeping beauty turquoise from right near by in Bisbee. The merlot pigments along with the whites and darks and turquoise make for an impressive art piece. It plays just as beautifully and this one reminds me of my only D in my personal collection. Nothing too flashy but when you play it you can just feel all the abilities it has. Amazing response with a mesmerizing drone, great vocals, easy overtones, and takes so little breath. I am so excited to see where this one ends up. As you can tell I so enjoyed making this one and now playing it!  A rare gem!!
