What is cobblestone inlay?
This style of inlay is called cobblestone or cornrow inlay. Besides cutting the stones so that they fit into an intricate pattern, the artist must also bevel each stone on every edge. This requires great skill and time and investment in materials.
You can easily see why this is sometimes referred to as cobblestone if you've ever seen a cobblestone street in an old historic section of a US city or abroad. Native American artists often call it cornrow inlay because in some patterns, the rows resemble corn kernels on a cob.
Block Stone Inlay
is comprised of epoxy, dye, and crushed stone. Block inlay is often more consistent in color, pattern and hardness than natural stone and is more suitable for applications such as inlay knife handles that may be subject to abrasion and moisture. The name of the inlay reflects what natural stone the block looks like, not what the inlay is made of.
Stabilized Stone Inlay
has been treated with a stabilizing agent that seals the pores of the stone so it will not change color or fracture. This makes the stone more suitable for fine carving, heishi, and knife handles.
