WONDERFUL DESIGNS BY SUZY TAYLOR:
I was wandering the web one day, looking for inspiration for a new product, when I came across Suzy Taylor, a self-taught papercutting artist from Great Britain. She takes heavyweight white paper and creates gorgeous artwork with just a craft knife and her own imagination! My immediate reaction (other than "Wow!") was that her artwork would look absolutely stunning if we used our precision laser cutter to cut her designs out of wood.
So we worked with Suzy to license a number of her designs, which we recieved as high-resolution scans of her original paper cuts. From there, we tweaked and processed those images, preparing them to be cut with our laser cutter. This process gave us the final pieces you see in the photos. Each piece is laser cut, then hand-sanded to a wonderfully smooth finish and cleaned with high-pressure air. The final product is nothing short of incredible.
While the same design is used for every cutout, each piece of art is unique based on its material. Baltic Birch plywood has a great variety of tans and browns, depending on the piece, while the ecologically-friendly grass, bamboo, has wonderful grain patterns that vary from piece to piece.
In order to maintain the integrity of these incredibly delicate cutouts, we only use the best quality Baltic Birch and Bamboo Plywoods. Plywood has more flexibility and strength than solid woods, meaning your artwork will last a very long time (just don't let your kids play frisbee with them!). Our plywoods are 1/8 inch (~3mm) thick and typically 3- or 5-ply. They are impressively strong!
Due to the nature of... well, Mother Nature... no two pieces of our woods or corks will look exactly alike. Each piece will vary in color, density, grain patterns, knots, etc. The world is full of these pleasant little surprises!
Also, the colors you see on your screen, whether it is a computer monitor, tablet or smartphone screen, won't precisely match what you receive. Every screen is slightly different, along with the photography and image editing process. If you need a sample prior to making a final order, that is typically no problem at all! Just let us know.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us! And if you have something else you'd like engraved or cut, keep in mind that we do many custom orders. We can engrave virtually anything! Some additional fees may apply for custom work.
