I finally completed the work started in 2010 years. I often ask myself, is it a coincidence that certain works are completed, a long time to simply be left unfinished.
I have the impression that the then lack of proper veneer just an excuse – it seems that some papers have to “ripen.”

Marquetry work from the series

Dusan, your talent is unbelievable.

Your interpretation of this work is flawless.

Impressive, sometimes you just can not rush the work and I can see it was well worth the wait.

Great job on this Dusan! Wonderful work. Very clever way of breaking the work into two smaller more manageable parts.

Thanks all :)

Paul, inspiration often draw from the works of my gifted colleagues with LJ.

Gshepherd, you’re right, it seems to us that we determine the dynamics of seemingly formless material, but it is true that the material actually manages the sequence of time.

Jim, I’m glad that you like the video. Simply, our crafts are many unknowns, and so I try to work each accompanied with a video presentation.

Nedeljko, one of his earlier works, large format, which I have not yet finished, is made up of six parts. But the satisfaction is when I look at how these separate segments of take final form.

Thanks again :)
