Engraving, an expression of grace and elegance, has long been considered the zenith of craftsmanship and technique. The casket entitled Foglie nel Vento “Leaves in the Wind” crafted on an American body, features aristocratic materials including Halliotis and Australian mother of pearl, and top-quality woods such as Californian walnut, cherry, olive ash burl, zingana, rosewood with a smoky finish, creating interesting colouration. An inlaid casket will always be unique in that nature cannot be cloned.
To understand the wonder of INLAY WORK, which still today is done completely by hand, one must understand the STYLE, which looks at the design as a whole, which is based on cultural roots, the search for the right shape and materials: top-quality wood, embellished with the most fascinating of inlays - tiny pieces of fire-smoked wood to create intriguing, natural chromatic effects, which are then secured by hand into a previously carved niche.
Rotastyle's wax finish is inspired by 18th Century French design. This type of finish leaves the wood grain visible, and is renowned for its shine and soft touch. This effect is obtained with numerous hand-applied coats of beeswax.
