Lutherie - plucked strings instruments

Vibrations for the joy of hearing. Music instrument design for the beauty of artworks.

The suspense associated with creating a musical instrument reaches its peak when the instrument is ready for its first notes to sound. The attention dedicated to the selection of wood species, to the design of form and structure, to the craftsmanship and ornamentation then comes to fruition. The creation unveils its tone color and personality. From then on, its expression will be revealed through its playing partner.

Inspired by the work of the great Spanish, French and American masters, my research focuses on the effect of structure on the tone color of the instrument.

I invite you to come and explore the world of lutherie, my passion.
