Straw marquetry

What's that ?

It is an art very similar to wood marquetry, in which straw replaces wood veneer. It is a technique from the Far East that was imported to Europe in the XVIIᵉ century.

Rye straw, covered with a layer of silica, plays with light to attract our attention, to question our gaze.

Using my own palette of tinted rye straw, curious to explore new horizons, I propose below some of my latest realisations.
