Mother of Pearl

October 18th, 2010

This picture was part of a test of some new gear I got: a Lastolite HiLite Illuminated Background. And I have to say, I love the background. It’s easy to set up and dismantle and works beautifully. One of the best (read most fun) investments in gear I’ve made yet.

Pictured is one of a set of two chairs which come with a folding games (cards, chess and backgammon) table. They’re wood inlaid with mother-of-pearl and handmade in Syria, a country with a long tradition in, and famous for, the handcrafting of quality mosaic furniture.

More coming soon!
