I remember what Sabina, one of the two original handpan makers said to me in 2005, when I was leaving the Hanghaus in Bern. I had asked her a silly question, which was something like "do you think I could ever make one of these?" She looked me up and down for a couple of seconds, and then definitively said "no". I believed her for many years. But then in 2012, with zero experience working with metals, I decided to actually try. Although my latest creation is not the same as the original in sound, I think it's good. I hope it will make someone happy for a fair price. We never really know what we are capable of, what lives deep inside, until we try.

At first, making these drums was more of a business idea. But then as I made my first batch of 10 drums in July of 2013, I realized I had stumbled onto making a very special musical drum.
