Yesterday I drove up to A Fonsagrada, a small village in the mountains in Lugo. I was to pick up the handles and hinges forged by Oliverio Alvarez López for my Bargenho .Oliverio is a master maker of Trompas de Boca, he is now retired but he agreed very generously to make the hardware. We discussed the design months ago and it is based, as a sort of homage to the craft of maiking that instrument,in the shape of the Trompa.
He brought the pieces from his very humble workshop ,wrapped in newspapers in a plastic bag. I was in awe . They are beautiful .
