Stylized Peacock Intarsia
Mixed Media Peacock Intarsia ($700)
The peacock is a gorgeous bird, and for many years I had wanted to create some form of mixed-media peacock. Finally, with a couple of intarsias under my belt, I decided it was time for that mixed media peacock to be realized. As the project progressed, I created a tutorial detailing the process. Created from a variety of woods (rosewood, lacewood, mahogany, and birch), metals (nickel silver and brass), and gemstones (abalone pearl, paua shell, and lapis), this stylized peacock represents an investment of about eighty hours worth of effort. The custom art frame, made of oak and maple, with abalone pearl, nickel silver, brass, and copper inlays, compliments the intarsia's overall design.
