Living fibers of bamboo are woven into a backboard and tiny strips pieced one by one into an image. One side of the square is glossy, while the other matte. A 10cm2 segment of marquetry will consist of over one thousand bamboo pieces, lying perfectly flush against one another. As with traditional window screens, marquetry creates an airy but satisfying interplay of light and shade. The complementary beauties of nature and craft combine.
