Maker Background

Piernot's journey in the art of bow-making commenced in 1892 at C.N. Bazin's workshop, where he diligently refined his skills until 1900. Following this formative period, he embarked on a new chapter in Paris, spending over a decade at the prestigious Léon Bernardel violin shop, where he absorbed invaluable expertise. In 1923, he boldly established his own workshop, marking the beginning of a distinguished independent career.

Throughout his illustrious career, Piernot maintained a fruitful collaboration with the Vigneron workshop, enriching his repertoire of techniques and styles. While his early work bore the influence of both Bazin and Vigneron, it was in the 1920s that his distinctive personal style truly flourished and matured.

Piernot's bows are distinguished by their robust yet gracefully shaped round sticks, often featuring a rounded head. Revered for their exquisite beauty and exceptional craftsmanship, Piernot's bows stand as a testament to his skill and dedication to the art of bow making.
