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 â€œElsieâ€. 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.
