Laura Gold Piece
Wood laser cut for a baby girl's birth.


Original artwork was deigned by hand and then re-drawn in vector form. The design was then laser cut in wood and hand painted gold. It was comissioned for the birth of a baby girl named Laura.

Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?

The brief for this project was to create a cohesive design to celebrate the birth of a baby girl named Laura. The project was a lot of fun and I had big creative freedom to do something I thought was beautiful and might work as a decorative piece for her nursery.

What were you trying to express?

I wanted the design to be feminine but not obvious, so I tried to "hide" the baby's name inside the flourishes, making as integrated as possible.

Is it 100% your original work?
