Marquetry is the creation of pictures using the natural colors, grain, and figures of wood veneer. Often described as 'quilting in wood'.
I love the incredibly varied palette provided by the more than 150 varieties of wood species from all over the world. There are times when the cutting is secondary to finding that one color, grain, or figure that conveys everything you were looking for on one particular piece of the overall work.
Available for demonstration events and informal classes.
