Marquetry is a craft which produces individual pieces of art using veneer.
Veneer is authentic natural wood which can be bought in bundles.
A bundle typically contains 24 or 32 sheets. Throughout the world
there are approximately 500 different varieties of wood most of
which are very rare. Each veneer has an inimitable character of
colour, texture and aroma.
Veneer is very thin slices of wood approximately 1mm hence can
be carved with a sharp knife.
Every single individual portion is cut out from the sheets hence
making marquetry a unique and original hand made craft. And
every single piece is put together in stages to form a whole image
almost like a puzzle being unravelled. When the “puzzle” is
completed it is secured at the back with a special paper tape then
glued on to chipboard.
The unique piece is then sanded down and coated with a semi
gloss finish.
Although these distinctive/individual pieces have no borders they
are composed of an assortment of forms and colours.
