Tafoni Red

'Elements of Time' Collection

Inspired by honeycomb-weathered lava-formed rocks called tafoni, this sample features an intricate marquetry pattern of English rippled sycamore veneer (custom dyed in varying shades of red) that transitions into a honeycomb-shaped polished brass mesh inlaid with red lacquer.

The seamless mirror-polished finishes of the three different materials used in this sample were achieved using the exacting skills of wood dyeing, micro-marquetry, metal inlaying and lacquer finishing.

 

Materials: English rippled sycamore, brass and lacquer.
