Description

Lison de Caunes shares with us forty years of experience in restoration and creation of straw marquetry.
The book begins with a historical study: often practiced by monks or convicts, the marquetry of straw was born in the 17th century in Italy, then experienced a first golden age in the following century, before being gradually abandoned. During the Art Deco period, it was reborn with designers like Paul Poiret and André Groult. Nowadays, some workshops (such as that of Lison de Caunes, granddaughter of André Groult), give the straw marquetry to the honor for objects, furniture or wall coverings.
The second part presents photographs of more than a hundred realizations of all periods: boxes, cases, paintings, furniture, games, fans, pouches, frames, bottles, screens or bindings are commented on technically and aesthetically.
The third part explains the rather simple techniques of straw marquetry: it deals with the materials, the dyeing, the reduced tools, the implementation, the making of the nets and the conservation of the work, and Than lesser known methods such as embossing and etching. Restoration techniques are also described. A list of useful addresses (associations, suppliers and many museums) completes the book.
