Process of making a Mother-of-pearl inlay furniture:
An inlay is a technique of inserting pieces of contrasting material into depressions made on a base object. The production of inlay furniture is a three-step process and requires up to a month to create. First, the fragments of the pearl shell are shaped delicately. Then these intricate shapes are affixed onto the timber frame in a detailed pattern. After this, the resin is filled around the mother-of-pearl shapes to craft the background. The pearl pieces are offset by the striking color of the resin to create an exotic looking oriental piece of furniture.
