Project Information

Last 2008 picture.

I was fascinated by the piercing technique developped by Vriz in France during the 80's.

The only thing I did not like was the nam, piercing. Piercing is a mistake and I did not like to use that term as the piercing was intended. With Patrick Edwards we finaly settle on the Fusion marquetry term, as it is self explainatory, you fuse to wood together to obtain a new mix, texture, feeling.

My intention was experimenting, get a feeling for the method, but mainly to manage to add shading to this technique, as I never seen fusion marquetry with any on it.

In experimenting : the Fusion Technique, I staged my "discovery"/experience of that newer technique and manage to get that shading that I was looking for.

Got a 4th place at the Design in Wood Show

Very neat. I like the combination of natural wood and your choice of colors.

Beautifully done. I could see why it was a prize winner. Is the blue portion a veneer behind the tear out portion in the foreground or is it part of the actual substrate? Along with the shading your piece is very interesting. Thank you for posting.

I really like this one Patrice. I commented earlier but forgot to hit the "post comment" button…Oops!
Is the blue laid in below the other color and sanded through?

The blue is on top of pine veneer, and the sandwich piece is cut piece by piece to fit with the rest
