Here is the body of one of our 34 string 'Clarsach' harps; it is the part that amplifies the sound when the strings are plucked. The customer for this particular instrument has requested a stylised rose design painted onto the soundboard. She also asked that it incorporated the initial letter 'R' but without it being too obvious. Can you see it (I don't think it's very hard to spot)?
Design now ready to paint
The soundboard may now be done but the harp itself is a few weeks from being finished.
