Lutherie - plucked strings instruments

Taming vibrations for the pleasure of listening; creating musical instruments with the beauty of a work of art. The suspense associated with creating a musical instrument reaches its apogee when the first note resonates.

All the attention devoted to the form and the structure of the instrument, to the choices of wood, to the craftsmanship and ornamentation, comes to fruition at this moment: The instrument reveals its tone and its personality.

From then on, its expression will depend on its future playing partner. Inspired by the work of the great Spanish, French and American masters, my research focuses on the effect that structure has on the timbre of the instrument. I invite you to come and explore the world that is my passion: the world of lutherie.
