Sandrine Viollet (along with several other members of the Atelier Viollet team) is currently working on straw marquetry interiors for a project to be completed this Fall. These interiors are composed of individual hand-cut fans with a sunburst shape. Each fan is then applied to the interior panels, forming a rhythmic pattern of sunbursts along a vast plane. The entire project calls for over a thousand individual straw fans, demanding hours of unbroken attention to detail. Atelier Viollet is very excited to share the results of this exciting installment in our long list of straw marquetry projects.
