Artist Interview: Daniel Scott, Artistic Kindling
Welcome to the first of our Artist interview series! For this premiere episode, we had the chance to sit down with Daniel Scott of Artistic Kindling to talk to him about his craft. The type of work Daniel performs is called marquetry.
Marquetry (also spelled as marqueterie; from the French marqueter, to variegate) is the art and craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.
Daniel creates beautiful wooden works of art using various pieces of wood to create a character or scene. Daniel’s works come from his own mind or in commissioned pieces. Daniel has been practicing his craft for over 20 years and is happy to teach others how to do the craft themselves.
