Paper Cut Heart Translated to Wood
I did my final laser cutting session of the Tool for Women residency at MakerLabs last Friday, and reproduced this lovely heart design as a laser cut from bamboo ply. The original paper cut is below so you can see how well they match. It was probably one of the easier ones for me to trace and create a vector file from in Illustrator, so it’s no surprise at how well it turned out as a laser cut piece.
It’s hard to get a sense of scale from the photos but the original is around 4.5 inches by 3 inches, and the wood version is 13.5 inches by 9 inches. The heart is from the series 28 Days of Hearts I worked on earlier this year.
Now that the residency is over, I’m trying to figure out how to move forward and continue creating laser cut pieces of work, which is something I’ve been intending to do for ages.
