Hendrickson, Mike

Categories ,

Highlighting the warm tones and undulating ribbons of gold and brown of each chosen piece of wood, Mike Hendrickson carves intricate faces, animals, and marquetry.  Marquetry, a technique of veneering different woods to form pictorial or decorative images, was an important art form in the Renaissance. Mike has carefully chosen from a wide variety of woods—curly koa, satinwood, holly, green poplar, ebony, elm, walnut, sapele, oak, red gum, and harewood, among others—to reproduce his animals and landscapes. He apprenticed with S. Mark Ingram of Haiku, Maui, and has assisted him in teaching marquetry classes on O`ahu and Maui. Mike lives in South Kona and now teaches his own classes on the Big Island.

Polish your marquetry work only if needed with a wax-based furniture polish. Use only a soft, tightly woven cloth.
