    Marquetry is a craft technique applied to the cladding of floors, walls, furniture, sculptures and art objects. Cut pieces of different materials are used in the work (stones, marble, wood, metals etc.), which are fitting on a stand to make the decorative design. It is an inlay work. Between pieces and others there is a contrast effect that depends on the color and the characteristic of the material used.

    In marquetry basis between one piece and other embedded, bedding is not as with the mosaic. The material that will go embedded with the shape of the design, is placed on the surface or medium and draw the outline is cut. Once embodied the stand drawing, is emptied slightly, leaving a hole where it will embed the marquetry; then flattens and Assembly paves so that the surface is level.
