Cartonnage, diorama, decoupage, silhouette, and gouache; these are the classic techniques used to bench-make each piece of Scanlon Apparati by Beth Scanlon.

Her work is influenced by a personal and romantic interpretation of Seventeenth-Century Baroque decorations create with coloured paper and canvas called Apparati. The aim of historical Apparati was to transform a very familiar space into a stage for celebration. Scanlon Apparati aims to entertain with smaller Apparati. All of the materials are new, some have a storied history. The pieces derive a timeless charm through meticulous craftsmanship. The desired effect remains theatrical, ephemeral, architectural, yet with functional use.
