He always has been in love with straw.  He believes straw marquetry is a technique that raises his designs to an even higher level and really sets his handmade furniture designs apart from others.

Referring to straw marquetry, he says, “it demands a lot of attention and accuracy from the craftsman, a lot of effort and patience, but the reward is well worth it.”

“I don’t know of any other material that can create such striking reflection with light.”

“The Straw Shop gave me an open door to work with this wonderful material and I hope that more people get to know it and appreciate it.”    “Without The Straw Shop it would have been very difficult to develop straw marquetry in US”.
