Absolutely beautiful! Sometimes hard to beat those ancient designs!

What techniques do you use for your marquetry pieces in Greece? Last year in Athens, we visited a workshop that used double bevel techniques to produce beautiful copies of M.C. Escher’s works in marquetry.

Five beautiful boxes.
I very much like each for its own reasons.
They are all excellent in design and workmanship.

Looking forward to more of your fine work.
