Strad Titian (1715) – 2011
This violin is based on the dimensions of the Strad Titan of 1715. “The Strad” magazine included the Titian in its Strad 3D project. I began this project under the tutelage of Olivia Pelling and am roughly following the inside mold method outlined in Johnson & Courtnall. The mold for violin was started in January 2011 and the violin was completed in December of 2011. The finish is a gentle amber with a hint of red.
