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:
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.
