Placing Orders

Each Flame is cut, painted, and built to order. Selected photographs of the build process and initial test flight are provided to the buyer directly from our studio. Every kite we make is signed and dated by Tim Elverston and Ruth Whiting.

Your Colors

Custom color pallets are part of the ordering process, so please give thought to what your color preferences are, and Ruth will provide options based on your guidance.


Building these kites occurs in several stages, and each stage has some inherant demands on time. Total turn-around time is about 5 weeks.
