the VENEER SERIES

a SPECIALTY SERIES

featuring delicate veneer woods

The Veneer Series  features original drawings on figured wood veneers.
Veneers come from tree trunks that are sliced into delicate, paper-thin sheets of wood.
Traditionally veneers are used in carpentry & furniture making.
 
Veneers are highly figured; meaning they have exceptional character, such as ribbons, swirls, flames, & marbling.
The figure of each veneer is defined in part to its species, wood grain, and its cut.
Ultimately veneers have exceptional color, shine, and stunningly unique grains.​
To further highlight the natural figuring of each veneer,​ The Veneer Series  are framed in shadow boxes.
Due to their figuring, veneers are not quite flat; each one has a subtle wave that flows with their unique wood grain.
Shadow box frames are 1 - 2 inches deep, so they enhance the structural qualities of the veneers, allowing them to float.
Depending on it's coloring, drawings are either in black framed shadow boxes with black mattes,
or gold with white mattes.
