FUTURE   FOR  AN  OLD CRAFTMANSHIP

Intarsia and marketry – a nearly forgotten craftmanship – has become very rare within the field of furniture production. It is  too time consuming thusexpensive. Ever since Art Deco it has not experienced a renaissance.

Nowadays, intarsia is only found in computer controlled mass production:
Like furniture and gifts of a cheap imitative pseudo-baroque version.

Personally, I have for many years cut my intarsia by hand, using this technique as a creative element when making boxes, trays, caskets and other pieces within my craft.

Whithin this craftmanship wood can be given a new timelessness and freshness, colouring, simplicity and light elegance. All these characteristics of wood come from the earth – like ist weight and its roots. Why not make this visible by redeveloping an old craftmanship: because trees do grow into the sky – troughout all seasons.
