Today I finished one drum, #18, shown below. It's become a daily meditation, to create a drum. Bringing out the colors of each drum with the torch is my favorite part of the making process. Heating the drum to around 500 degrees relaxes the metal some, and the instrument becomes more resonant.

At first, making these drums was more of a business idea. But then as I made my first batch of 10 drums in July of 2013, I realized I had stumbled onto making a very special musical drum.
