What is Intarsia?
in 13th Century Italy, Intarsia is enjoying a resurgence
of popularity. The name Intarsia literally means, "a mosaic
in wood". Intarsia created by artist, TerrieLynn Bach is
in the style of the old Masters, using various kinds of woods
from all over the world. Cat Dancing Intarsia is created first
on paper. Upon transferring the Intarsia design to wood, the Intarsia
spirit comes to life in 3 dimensions! Intarsia woods are never
stained. All Intarsia is finished with a high gloss clear polyacrylic
coating for preservation. Due to the innate nature of Intarsia,
each Intarsia mosaic is unique, signed, numbered, and dated by
TerrieLynn Bach as an original Cat Dancing Intarsia Mosaic Wood
Cat Dancing Creations has been in business since 1992. The name, "Cat
Dancing" comes from artist, TerrieLynn Bach's love of cats
and Middle Eastern Dance! Cat Dancing became her adopted name
and the company name naturally followed. TerrieLynn has been an
artist, teacher and dancer all her life. Creating her original
Intarsia is a passion. Prior to
that she has painted animals and people portraits in oils and watercolors,
created cake sculptures and stained glass. Currently she is
writing a how-to book on Intarsia which will include many of her
most popular patterns. She lives in Texas with her son and
many pampered cats.
