In the veneer future: A new angle on the old craft of marquetry
from The Financial Times
Marquetry is making a comeback. Ornate, detailed and visibly handcrafted, the art of creating designs and images by applying pieces of veneer to a solid wood surface has been around since the 16th century – and is now enjoying a revival. In the past few years, designers have rediscovered the possibilities of the craft and British designers in particular are experimenting with new materials, aesthetics and approaches, giving the traditional approach an interesting, and at times irreverent, modern twist.
