Description

Sophie Gallardo has studied interior design before learning wood painting restoration. She acquired ancient technics from renowned profesionnals. 

Sophie Gallardo and Georges-Guillaume Cassan chose to promote birch bark they saw growing in the forest. They then invented a unic and exceptionnal process to create birch bark marquetry.

 

Each piece is unique and its making can take up to three months. Gallardo and Cassan operate on fine furniture (from 17th century to 1970s) playing with bark imperfections, reliefs of the material to create graphic shapes and motifs. Mineral inlays (labradorite, rock crystal, amethyst) punctuate the surfaces as gems turning these pieces of furnitures into cabinets of curiosity.
