All our Mother of Pearl furniture is hand made using beech or birch for
the frames and high quality MDF for the flat surfaces. Being
man-made, MDF is more tolerant to variations in temperature and
humidity resulting in less movement and less likelihood of the lacquer
Once the base colour has been applied, the surfaces are built up with
several coats of lacquer. The artist then hand paints all the art work
and then finishes with a final coat of lacquer. When dry, the piece of
furniture is then embossed with the Mother of Pearl figures.
