Learning From The Past

Epinettes Des Vosges

Design is a constant process, at least for me.

The past is an archive of knowledge that inspires new ideas.

I have collected many images over the years that I browse through when considering a new dulcimer design or when looking for a solution to a design problem.

Here are several images that have recently come to the top of the pile when looking for some new ideas. I can not remember where most of these images came from but I share them with you for your inspiration.

I thank the craftspeople and luthiers before me for their effort and continuing legacy.

I see no need to abandon the past while moving forward. To do so would be a great loss. Tradition is not static; it evolves.
