Instruments are as much a work of art as they are a work of science. Olivia has been fortunate enough to visit a lab to image the microscopic ultrastructure of the tone woods she uses to craft her instruments and to visit many famous locations to see instruments produced by the old masters being exhibited in museums worldwide. Below, Olivia shares her experiences with you (click any image to see more).
