The bidet, French for "pony," is a low-mounted plumbing fixture used to wash the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus. The etymology comes from the Old French term, "bider," which translates "to ride," as the user sits upon the bidetas though he or she were riding a pony. The bidet is also referred to as the "garden hose" because of how it cleans much like a gardener watering his plants. Bidets once served as a practical way for couples to prepare themselves before sex, as well as to rinse themselves afterward.

Daybed WIP

More photographic documentation of the Pietre Dure inlay process at the studio. Daybed is being inlayed with carnelian, black marble, malachite, lapis lazuli, and tiger eye.

Earlier stages - lapis lazuli and tiger eye pieces being placed in location and then inlayed.

The pieces are laid into position before they are inlayed.

All elements laid into place, some inlayed already on the left side.

Larger pieces of lapis lazuli with carnelian on top for one of the edges.

Elements after being inlayed.
