Original French design and production

A disc of light seems to be rolling on a smooth base of solid ebony wood, polished to perfection. This precious golden wheel is entirely covered in fine marquetry made from split and flattened lengths of straw. As the stalks are all of different colors and tones, the assembled inlaid strips give the impression that the lamp is lit from within.

The artist prefers using rye straw which is by nature covered in silica, a varnish that gives the straw its shine, as well as allowing it to retain the sap inside the stem.
