    Turquoise Bow

    Turquosie Bow was produced for "The Ivory Project" of Darling Publications. -It was placed Turquoise mineral instead of “eyes” and “abalone” on the frogs.-Turquoise is a mineral identified with the Turks and the name is coming in this way.-It was placed two different colors abolone besides turquoise.-The eyes resemble crescents and facing each other based on the "Cintamani" motif which is widely used in Eastern cultures and thought to symbolize power-There were only two eyes on the frog and It was not completing number of the crescent. For that reason I used same shape at the end of button and the number was completed.-I used raw silk obtained by traditional way and 18 k rose gold thread for lapping..

    violin bows

    violin bows made by M.U.GULER IZMIR
  7. Last year, we have founded a major event for the first time in İzmir. The “INTERNATIONAL VIOLIN and BOW MAKING WORKSHOP and EXHIBITION”, co-founded by Andy LIM, the founder of Darling Publications from Germany, and me, Murat Ufuk GÜLER, had brought together more than twenty instrument making students all around Turkey with distinguished instrument makers such as Nicolas GILLES (Violin Maker, France) Wolfram NEURETHIER (Violin Maker, France) Boris FRITSCH (Bow Maker, France) and Josef Peter GABRIEL, (Bow Maker, Germany) who were awarded in international competitions. During the workshop, sponsored by IKSEV (İZMİR FOUNDATİON FOR CULTURE, ARTS AND EDUCATİON) and Dokuz Eylul University, two violins and six bows were put into production by students.The exhibition which was held in MUZIKSEV, the first music museum of Izmir, consisted of a partial selection of Andy Lim’s bow collection and the participants' violins and instruments. This year we will reorganize the event again between 12-16 December 2016 as The SECOND INTERNATIONAL VIOLIN and BOW MAKING WORKSHOP and EXHIBITION. We will complete the bows and violins that were not completed last year. Likewise the last year, we will have concerts and seminars that bring violin making students and the musicians from Turkey and abroad together for five days in a festival mood. Also nearly 20 violin makers, mostly from Turkey, besides France, Germany, Spain and Italy will exhibit their instruments. This will be the biggest instrument making organisation in Turkey so far.
