All of our Marquetry is crafted from precisely cut pieces of wood which are inlaid in a natural wood background. The result is a series of intricate and elaborate scenes reminiscent of our beautiful Outer Banks and other coastal areas.

The creation of these marquetry scenes by Hudson River Inlay begins with a rough  sketch by the artist.  The next step is to capture the essence of the subject with just a few subtle lines that convey its motion and vitality.  The result is a final line drawing that serves as a blueprint for each individual piece of art. 

Next, the artist carefully selects the various woods for his palette...with an eye for the natural grains and hues of the veneers that will give warmth and subtle shading to the finished work.

The veneers are precision cut, then assembled and finished by hand to form an exceptional wood image.  The result is a masterful piece of marquetry art of unmatched beauty and elegance.
