Oakland-based artist Gabriel Schama used to cut a lot of his work by hand but now most of his work is made from whatever he can cut with his laser cutter affectionately called “Elsie”. His incredible and intricate relief sculptures are created with layered pieces of laser-cut mahogany plywood. Each piece starts out as vector illustration which is sent to the laser cutter that cuts a 1/8th piece of plywood. The layers are then glued together and varnished.
