Michelangelo Foundation meeting all 11 criteria for excellence in craftsmanship.
"THE FOUNDATION / CRITERIA FOR EXCELLENCE
The master artisans we support all have one thing in common – they represent excellence in their field."
Graduate of the Newark School of Violin Making in 1986, Stepan has worked internationally
including the United Kingdom, Japan, Belgium and Greece.
Now based in Cyprus he has established a high reputation with clients all over the world.
With 40 years of experience he can work using various styles and techniques
to successfully recreate a variety of models based on the classical Italian makers.
"I focus on perfection and never compromise any aspects in making a violin; for example,
selecting the tonewood
accuracy of the workmanship
ingredients of the varnish
the final set up, etc.
With each instrument I make my aim is to create something exceptional.
Trusting professionals and discerning musicians appreciate my instruments for their
tone and beauty;
instruments that meet the highest demands and standards."
