BLUE WOOD MARQUETRY INLAID PHONE STAND
Artist: Lost Art Woodworks (Durham, NC)
The different colors across the front are 3 different pieces of wood. They offer great functionality while in use and a fun piece of art while waiting to be used! The stand is made up of 3 pieces that “friction” fit together so they can be packed and shipped flat. There is convenient cord access up through the shelf so your device can be plugged in while on the stand. While the stand has a vertical orientation, it will hold a phone horizontally when needed - especially when watching video.
Lost Art Woodworks was founded by Brian Bortz in 2001. After 18 years employment in the telecommunications business, he made a life-changing decision to pursue his passion to design and create truly distinctive wood accessories and furniture - thus becoming Lost Art Woodworks. His current work blends vibrant exotic wood veneers into wood and shell mosaics – defining his style into what he calls “Contemporary Art Deco”. He mixes woods along organic and geometric lines using marquetry techniques for contrast, complement, tone and color. All pieces are made primarily using basic power tools with occasional use of computer aided technologies. Hand tools such as planes, chisels and scrapers are used frequently in his studio. All the marquetry work, more complex milling, and all finishing are performed by Brian on every piece he creates. He uses a variety of finishing techniques selected to best accent the naturally occurring figure in the wood, with all prominent touchable surfaces being hand-polished to produce a silky feel.
