Ebony Inro

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Years ago I attempted to make a small ebony Inro. Having not handled an Inro myself then and without any guidance I did it the hard way, through what you might call "micro-carpentry. The bottom compartment alone for example is made of 9 different pieces. It was painstaking but fun and I think I've managed to get the hard part done. One side was inlaid while the other remains blank awaiting new ideas / inspiration, so it's still an unfinished project. Comments - suggestions are most welcome.

Ebony, ivory, pine wood, pearl, mother of pearl, coral. 4.5cm.

Regards / Ezz
