More on my visit to a luthier’s workshop. A luthier or a maker of stringed instruments (eg: guitar, violin) happened to be moving studios when we just met. The place was in a creative disarray; I wouldn’t call it messy, but not “fully sorted out yet” – is the best description!
Half formed, partly recognizable pieces lay on his work table which piqued my interest even more. Picture the atmosphere – dust particles hanging in the air, floating lazily in the sunshine streaming down from the high windows… Odd shapes, raw wood, varied textures. Wouldn’t you be fascinated?
CURVES ~ of not quite completed pieces
EXPOSED ~ insides out! The belly of an instrument lies exposed
Stay tuned for my final part 3 – the raw materials.
