Tree, Grove, Forest -- Heal us, you do.
there you are
The Forest lays the guiding principles for the creation of these instruments. Some of Vancouver Island's beautiful trees which Sylvan Temple gratefully
salvages are: Cedar, Costal Douglas Fur, Maple, Yew, Sitka Spruce, Cypress, Alder, Garry Oak, Arbutus, Bitter Cherry... many more.
Sylvan Temple strives to face the currrent challenge to manufacturing and artisanhood: to use supplies which the immediate environment has in
abundance, to outsource locally from others who are doing the same, to then produce through a dependency on your environment. A company should
feel the consequences of its activities and create production structures which can easily evolve to balance them.
Sylvan Temple drums are made to last generations, and to sound and feel beautiful enough to inspire the care this requires.
Peace and balance to Earth and all,
