Little Cloud Kites come with a wooden spool with 200 feet of strong kite string, plus flight instructions & kite quiver (bag). Kites are 48 inches wide and 25 inches tall, printed on organic cotton, on a frame of Canadian hardwood spars. The kite is keel-less, with an adjustable bridle. Robert Milheron, our neighbor, hand turns our signature wooden kite spool in his small, wood-heated shop.

Artist: Faith Stone
"My new direction is to fuse two disciplines and add local flavor. My background is drawing and painting traditional Tibetan thangkas, Buddhist scroll paintings. I am merging that with the practice of traditional Japanese woodblock prints, mokuhanga. Then, I add local landscape especially from Hawaii and Colorado where I spend most of my time. My goal is acknowledge a new art movement, that of American Buddhist Art. I honor the traditions of the past while making the artwork uniquely from a Western perspective. I believe the real joy of carving and painting Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Hindu deities is the idea of creating a space for the Buddha or deity to reside. The attitude is that once the painting is finished – The Buddha or Tara or Ganesha move in."
