My second intarsia I made. It is cut veneer. I used heating (carbonization) and putty.

Absolutely beautiful!

Just curious, what is the difference between intarsia and marquetry?

The difference here is a matter of the country and language of translation. This is clearly what in English speaking countries is called marquetry. The terms are elusive from language to language.

What ever you call it this is just excellent work.
What a great future you have ahead of you Dominik, your talent is obvious and your training must have been excellent.
Bravo on all the pieces you have posted today.

Dominik, thank you for sharing this excellent work with us! Love it, very Mucha!

I especially like how you handled the reflection of her feet in the water and the shading in the gown. Well done!

Yep, very well heat treated and composed :) I also noticed the exquisite detail of the reflected legs.
