Here’s a few recent works by Oakland artist Gabriel Schama (previously here and here) who designs elaborately layered wood relief sculptures with the help of a laser cutter. The pieces are cut from a variety of different plywoods which he layers to create varying images of the human form, architectural studies, and mandala-like patterns. You can see more on his website, and in his shop.

We have collaborated with paper artist Ian Penney to create the Filigree collection, an exquisitely dreamy quartet of lasercut Greeting Cards.
The Filigree collection is a dazzling interplay between the delicate and the bold, as the intricate lace-like lasercutting is drenched in punchy block colours that contrast crisply with the background. The resulting silhouette effect is simply sublime, particularly when the cards stand open and shadows add an extra dimension to the designs.
The cards feature matching illustrated panels on the reverse, for writing messages… although we think that handwriting peeking through lasercut looks really rather lovely! Either way, these cards truly do justice to Penney’s striking original artwork. Have a look:
