New Style

I have tones of drawings on my shelves, drawers, pocket bag...

Sometime I do not know how to interpret it in marquetry but after a while I always find a way to make the best of it.

Couple months ago I was told to do some more figurative, so I made more abstracts.

Then I was told I should make more stripe abstract, so after I dived in my drawing and get those out.

Group show at Protea Gallery

This sunday I will be showing a selection of my marquetry pieces in a group show at the Protea Gallery in San Diego, North Park.

Come by and see us!

Art Institute of Chicago Marquetry Demonstration

Couple months ago a film crew from the Art Institute of Chicago came by the workshop to film the process to create marquetry.

We demonstrated 2 different techniques from renown cabinet makers, Boulle and Roentgen.

In order to show our appreciation to the AIC patron who made this videos possible, helping putting the trades in light, we decided to create a token using the same techniques and style we demonstrated.

Here is the result.
Ebony brass Boulle marquetry for the frame, ebony and purple-heart molding, Walnut and died hornbeam for the Roentgen marquetry.
