“In Neidermeier of Repair”
This biedermeier inspired table has a bit of problem. It seems the basket weave pattern is in desparate need of repair. The composition uses a story telling technique of character (the owner writing the to-do note), conflict (the torn basket weave), and resolution (take a weaving class). This table has 400 pieces of marquetry incorporating sand shading techniques to create the illusion of an actual weave. It is made with avodire, movingue, pear, jequitiba, holly and lauro preto veneers.
I love everything about this piece; classic style, superb marquetry, humor and context - I would not be able to look at your 'to do' list for very long before I would have to repair that weave - I wish you well with your really novel entry.
Marquetry is way more difficult than it looks. Nice work!
