Violeta Galan

The Straw Shop is pleased to welcome French trained straw marquetry artist Violeta Galan who resides in the United Kingdom.

Ms. Galan’s style caught our eye.  With a background of structural engineering her use of  use of geometric patterns are uniquely her signature.

Ms. Galan shared the following:

” I create furniture and home accessories with a contemporary take on the traditional craft of straw marquetry. My pieces have a hint of retro as for straw marquetry design I take inspiration from op art, geometry and nature. Collaboration with skilled cabinetmakers make possible the realization of my projects. I do mostly commissioned work based on my design with slight variations.”

Please enjoy the following examples of her work:
