Believe it or not this is clay! Made from “Buesseler cut” clay with the look of exotic wood inlaid with gold. Buesseler cut is a technique of folding different shades against the grain of a variant shade to made gradients, then it is cut on a bias to reveal a surprising pattern. I have then inlaid this pattern with gold foil for an exotic and unique look and finished the piece with sunlight cured resin to bring out the shine.
Out of all the pieces I have ever produced, I think this one is perhaps my favorite. I made two of them, and my mother saw it and stole the second one for herself!
