Wood Arts

Eye-catching Inlay

Inlay is considered a specialty of the wood artists in southern India - the centuries-old inlaid work makes tables, furniture fronts, armchair backrests or wall coverings a unique eye-catcher. The palette ranges from traditional Indian subjects to trendy shapes.

Current project: Portraits in wood

It doesn't always have to be a photo! Currently, portraits in wood are being created in Mysore on behalf of a Swiss artist - a modern implementation of intarsia art. For this, segments of 3-millimeter-thick different woods are sawn out by hand and glued onto a wooden beam, sanded there and then varnished.

Wood species: Beech, Oak, Ash (Europe), Teak, Mahogany, Redwood (India)
