Lupan Handpans are handmade by Mark Petersberger Lupescu.
As profesional musician and harp maker he moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2008. There is where he discovered handpans and integrated them in his music.
In 2013 he starts his journey of building handpans.
He learned the art of tuning steel thanks to the guidance of master tuner Darren Dyke and as a result of many hours of hammering where he developed his own technique.
Having played these instruments in different situations (concert hall, yoga room, open space) he knew very well which qualities to search in a handpan: stable and equilibrated notefields, nice timbre, good sustain, pleasant overtones.
As a perfectionist he is always seeking to improve these qualities.
