This is a wall art piece that uses ceramic mosaic techniques. It is made from Gabon Ebony, Paduak, EI Rosewood, Hard Maple and Black Walnut.

The Paduak and Ebony pieces were cut to allow space between, then filled with Ebony dust-laden epoxy. Finish coat is 1/16” epoxy and 3 coats of lacquer.

It’s about 14” across. The oblong smaller spots were routed in and filled with dust-laden epoxy also.

Thanks, Dave! That is so cool! I was going to try some things with inlace with scroll sawing and after seeing this it really inspires me to give it a go. I just love it!

This is quite a lovely piece. I like how the wood grain shows up against the flat black. Very elegant.

Terrific piece Cap. Great colors and shapes… the use of the wood grain makes this piece shine. Thanks for the post.
