All That Glitters: Gold, Or Illusion?



Does spinning gold from straw only exist in fairy tales?

Yes, but French craftswoman Lison de Caunes does a similar kind of magic with straw marquetry.
She uses broken and sometimes dyed strands of straw and glues them to a base. In the process, patterns that shimmer like gold or precious stones are created, which can be used, for example, to decorate furniture.
Lison de Caunes reveals her technique in her studio in Paris.
