THE MAKERS' FORUM
PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE
MAKING OF CONTEMPORARY INSTRUMENTS AND BOWS
"The joy of playing, the exploration of sound, artistic creation: these are among the many leitmotifs that guide my work. The musician should feel as though the bow is an extension of his body. This is what I seek to accomplish.
As a lover of music, an admirer of fine materials, and as one who has always been fascinated by those with manual expertise, I naturally embraced the métier of bowmaker. I worked for several years in France in the company of Blaise Emmelin, and after in Brussels at "Maison Bernard" for Pierrre Guillaume. Here, driven by a respect for traditional bowmaking techniques, I was also trained in the art of bow restauration.
Inspired by a background founded on respect and knowledge of traditional bowmaking practices, it gives me great pleasure knowing that my creativity serves to foster the creativity of the musician."
