Doriane Bodart Silver Cello Bow

Born into a family of artists in 1972, Doriane Bodart is
the granddaughter of the great sculptor Marcel Bodart, and her parents were both violin makers (luthiers).
She learned her craft from world-renowned master bow-makers, acquiring the century-old techniques of the French bow-making tradition during her years of appren- ticeship. She has worked with great masters such as Stephane Thomachot, Noel Burke, Charles Espey, Pierre Guillaume. She attended master classes at Oberlin (Ohio) and has participated in numerous exhibitions – in 2014 in the “Great Hall of the Villette”, and for the past 3 years at the Bellevilloise exhibition in Paris, a group which brings together the greatest contemporary bow-makers.
In 2016 she participated in the “Viola’s” competition at the CRN, Paris, and in the contemporary bow competition in Amsterdam in April. She has contributed to diverse pro- jects, for example, at the behest of Andy Lim, making a viola bow mounted with silver and ivory, a special project for Darling publications.
With great care she chooses the best Pernambuco wood known for its excellence for bows. The name of Bodart is now renowned for its reliability, and high- quality workmanship. Doriane works from her beautiful Parisian studio in the famous Montparnasse district. Many gifted musicians use her bows, which are widely distributed abroad, in Vienna, the United States, Japan. Her work is also appreciated by great soloists
