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
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
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
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
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
of marquetry art of unmatched beauty and elegance.
