'Zebras' Cabinets

Patterns in nature help to conceal or accentuate forms. Expressive of the irregular formative processes, some purely functional, their intrinsic character, whether microscopic or plainly visible, reminds us of the mystery of nature. The 'Zebra' cabinets are part of a series; here the instantly recognisable markings of the zebra are the starting point for embracing the use of marquetry, the decoration of surfaces by the use of contrasting veneers.
