Marquetry

….is the art of applying pieces of inlaid veneer, usually wood, to a surface.

From this traditional definition Rick has experimented with 3D marquetry, adding materials such as paper, shell, resins and paint.

His marquetry uses a composite wood base with the inlaid wood veneers glued to the base. The wood veneers are sourced from rescued offcuts from commercial veneering and topveneer.com.au
