Ihle Violins

Beauty may happen in the dynamics of lines, in the tension between strength and fragility, in the shimmering game between light and shadow ... This is what I love about violin making.

A close fit

Some times, I do things that do not make sense, like chalk fitting an arching... and might not be all in vain.
