Inlays

The actual composition of a marquetry element is an exercise in patience and requires the utmost concentration. Every segment, no matter how small, must be inserted into the basic pattern in the exact right place and manner. Pieces are removed from the basic element and replaced with contrasting or complementary parts. Structure, direction of grain and colour nuances are the most important variables in this context.
