July 06, 2014

I have recently been working on a series of editions for Kate & Able design store in Fremantle, WA . These works are derived from some drawings I have been working on for some parquetry flooring patterns. The works pay homage to traditional characteristics such as pattern contrast and illusion.  Each piece is made from hand assembled real wood veneers bonded to a solid timber backing. each piece is hand finished with french polish and cabinet polish.
