Straw marquetry is an incredible old Art Deco technique popularized by Jean Michel Frank a french designer, France where i come from.
With patience, precision, dexterity, one by one, edge to edge straw is applied on supports, giving an incredible, natural, smooth, unusual, luxury, rare & shiny object.
I am french, living in Scarborough for 2 years now. My work is related to the Art Deco period that i love, only few in the world work with this unusual technique of straw marquetry. I am collaborating with luxury home design industry and also developping my own creations (see items on the site), but also very design furniture covered with straw using different patterns as geometric, "filets", inlays, sun burst etc... Hope you will enjoy.
