Inlay-on-Wood is the extraordinary art of creating artistic images by inlaying small pieces
of deliberately selected materials on a wood surface. The artist consciously selects the
materials (mainly various types of wood) by their natural grain and color, and depending
on the image that he is to create.
Based on the design of the work, materials are elaborately sawed or cut into miniature, yet
thick pieces, and delicately placed together in an artistic manner. To emboss the work,
artist utilizes hand-held pulverizing instruments to wear away the unwanted thickness from
each single piece. The work is finally finished with fine application of dyed polyester to
provide stability and durability of the work.
Mastering this art requires hard work, knowledge, patience and love along with talent,
creativity and expertise. However it is only love that can put all these together.
