The way I make my instruments and my design are mostly inspired by the great Italian masters of the Renaissance who defined the standards of lutherie
The observation of ancient instruments inspires me to look for the best wood, the most beautiful models and the best architecture for the arching.
All my work is done with sharp tools like planes, gouges but also self-made knives and flat gouges.
I also prepare my varnishes from oil and different resins to be able to influence their colour, transparency, flexibility or hardness.
Imitating or getting inspired by centuries-old models is not enough. I am always looking for new features. I also design models of violins, altos and cellos in which I translate what I have learned from old my masters and my vision of what can make them better.
I take great care of choosing the right wood which I can buy personally in Italy to be sure of its quality. I also make some of my tools for them to adapt perfectly to my hands. I also prepare my varnishes from oil and different resins to be able to influence their colour, transparency, flexibility or hardness.
My instruments are on display in Montpellier, Paris, Washington DC, Seattle, New-York, London, South-Korea and in Japan.
Every instrument is available for trial at our beautiful central London showroom.
