Lison de Caunes must be credited as the individual who saved the art of straw marquetry. She is the master craftswoman behind this objet d’art. Lison is one of the best when it comes to straw marquetry and has earned that right by being honored as one of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France. It is the highest honor to be achieved by craftspeople from the government of France. Lison’s website is in French but it offers inspiration.
You can see an interview with Lison on our Video page.
