Mosaic Damascene

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

Introducing, Mosaic Damascene. Keep reading to learn more about the artist and his fine woodworking products available this holiday season!


"Amer and his family were welcomed to Saint John in 2016 as refugees fleeing the way in their home country of Syria. Most of the boxes in this display were made before the family came to Canada, when they lived in Syria and Egypt.


The Damascene wood mosaic is one of the oldest and most distinguished traditional handicrafts in Damascus, Syria. It is used decoratively on furniture and wood boxes. Amer learned the art of crafting Damascene wood mosaic from his father at the age of 15 and has been crafting wood mosaics ever since. The handicraft uses various types of coloured woods including Rosewood, Almond and Eucalyptus. You will also find materials like seashells intricately webbed into designs. Being able to make something beautiful and pleasing from simple materials and watch it take form is a great joy and Amer's hope is that his craft will bring joy to others."
