OK, so I’m a Hokusai fanatic! Here’s another marquetry interpretation of a Hokusai woodblock print from the 1830’s. This one is entitled “Kajikazawa in Kai Province” and comes from his famous 36 Views of Mt. Fuji series.
For this work, I used double bevel marquetry techniques with the addition of inlayed lines for the silhouette of Fuji and the fisherman’s lines. The woods are Chechen rosewood, aspen, sapele, padauk, Macassar ebony, maple, ipe and green colored buckeye burl.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone!
