Marquetry, Naturally Colored Wood
Each Artwork is limited to 10 pieces

Planting 250 trees per artwork

“OFFSIDE ARTISTS” is a sustainable cross-culture project with the aim of planting trees in Madagascar. We are recreating artworks with wood and presenting one series twice a year with 10 different pieces. Each artwork is an edition of 10, which leads to a total number of 200 per year. Using two trees for the production of all pieces we are able to plant 50.000 trees with our annual profit.

Marquetry is a unique handcraft assembling small slices of wood to form an image. To create various tones of coloured wood planks they will be placed in water filled rice fields in different depths for a certain time. After the wood has dried it will be cut in pieces and assemble to an image manually.

The production of the pieces takes places in the highlands of Madagascars wood-carving industry, in Ambositra. This area is famous for their wood handcraft and marquetry.

Eden Reforestation Projects

Madagascar is a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land. Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away into the sea.

Eden Reforestation Projects managed to plant 210.544.032 million trees by now. The famous NGO is supported by tentree, Ecosia, treesisters and more big companies. We are happy to work with such a great partner.
