The violin has been called the “King of Instruments.” For me, violins have proved to be the most difficult instrument to make because they offer the greatest acoustic challenges. The violin string tensions are the highest of all members of the violin family and the tolerances necessary for excellence during construction are very close. All in all, I find the violin enormously exciting to make.

Five violins are currently presented here, two from an earlier period of my work and the others are more current.
