In interviews, Marie was asked:
How long does it generally take to create a Wickerville piece?
"It ranges from 3-6 weeks. I like to give each piece a lot of thought, each one has been carefully researched to its origin of time of the twentieth century, where I blend it with my own personal touch. Also no two pieces are alike. I prefer to use old vintage materials and lace for the trimming. Many of which came from family heirlooms dating back over generations."

In another article, "Today we meet the maker behind these stunning, wicker miniatures."
Marie Terones writes:
"I started Wickerville almost thirty years ago, creating and designing hundreds of pieces of miniature Victorian style wicker furniture consisting of constantly evolving ideas and techniques, forever improving on classic designs. My work has traveled the world and have been featured in numerous Miniature Boutiques, Press and Musuems. My selection varies from carriages to cribs, settees to parasols and from baskets to vanity stands. Each item has been carefully researched, dating back to its time of origin, with its own unique and original design, capturing the era of the early twentieth century and its delicate style, while being blended with ideas of my own imagination.
Each wicker piece is authentic, there are no two alike. The detailed trimmings consist of materials that I have gathered from old scrap linens, lace and other knickknacks, dating back over generations; thereby allowing the memory of a special fabric to become reborn into the world on an entirely new scale.
My standard design is proportioned to a 1" scale, however I also create 1/2"."
