This post is several months overdue.  Please forgive me.  In September of 2013 Andy Lim of Darling Publications, Cologne, Germany released his publication of “The Great Contemporary Bow Makers of the 21st Century” Vol. II.  The event was held at the Palazzo Trecchi in Cremona, Italy.  Twenty makers including myself are featured in this volume (full list to follow).  Andy released “The Great Contemporary Bow Makers of the 21st Century” Vol. II, and another book documenting the exhibition at Palazzo Trecchi cataloguing the work and biographies of the 57 makers who were in attendance.

Andy Lim is a talented publisher, cellist, business man, and he throws quite a party from time to time.  The 15th century Palazzo Trecchi in the home town of Antonio Stradivari, made a splendid back drop for the gathering of 28 bow makers and 29 violin makers from around the world.  Three days were spent eating and drinking in the good company of many fine archetiers and luthiers as well as various other people from the world of stringed instruments.  The makers shared an exceptional camaraderie during this time as we admired and discussed each others work.

For a more detailed description of the book see my earlier post on Vol. I.

Back in Port Townsend!

Posted in Port Townsend, Uncategorized on November 10th, 2013 by Robert Morrow

Here is a photo of the new bow shop in Port Townsend.  It is located in the historic Mount Baker Block Building, which was built in 1890.  This room works very well as a bow shop, quiet, good light, and right down town.  It feels good to be back in Port Townsend!
