Parquet Wall Feature

This piece represents so much to me. Above all it represents one of the few projects I have done for myself from my sketch book. Here I explore the versatility of parquet, beyond flooring to things like tables and now ornamental fixtures/wall panels like this one.



Nearly all materials for this piece were salvaged, including the distressed wood a friend got from a construction site (thanks chad!). The wood was treated in three ways to achieve the contrast I wanted. I used natural mediums to ebonize the left triangles, whitewashed the center and distressed distressed the far right.
