Overview

"PAINTING IN WOOD"
Join Judy Gale Roberts as she explores the craftsmanship and creative potential of Intarsia - the art of making picture mosaics in wood.

12 beautiful projects - perfect for the home and as gifts- are presented inside with complete instructions, patterns and color photographs of the finished projects.

These are all-new projects- never before made available in book form.

You'll use just the natural color and grain of the wood - no painting or staining required - to make these useful and decorative pieces.

Cutting out each individual wooden piece is done on your scroll or band saw. Then, use the tested techniques that Judy has developed to shape and texture the final piece. Assemble your piece and get ready for the beauty it will bring to your home and the appreciation from your friends when given as gifts.

Judy Gale Roberts, a sculptress by training, is responsible for the resurgence of interest in Intarisa through her books, articles, classes, newsletter and design studio. Roberts Studio, run with the help of her partner Jerry Booher, is located in Sevierville Tennesee near Dollywood.

Judy is an original memeber of the Woodworking Hall of Fame sponsored by WOOD tm Magazine.

Judy Gale Roberts was born in Houston, Texas. She attended Houston's Museum of Fine Arts School but eventually elected to study art "hands-on" with her artist/sculptor father, Pat Dudley Roberts. Throughout the 70's they created intarsia murals, etched glass and sculptures in metals for architects. Early on, Judy recognized that she enjoyed bringing wood to life by shaping it, working with grains and colors
