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.
