I based these laser cut samples around Italian architecture. I looked at the harsh, geometric buildings in Venice and compared them to the overgrown buildings in Verona.
The samples above and below are a section of the gate from the amphitheatre in Verona.
The image below was cut three times on different settings on the laser cutter and then I have placed then on top of each other creating depth.
These next two images is a repeat pattern inspired by a well in Venice. The above image is a paper sample, clear and crips. Whereas the one below is layered organza which has tangled and frayed beyond recognition.
The image below is a section of the top image in repeat on paper.
The same pattern on a larger scale in organic silk.
The last sample is a combination of foil printing with laser cutting over the top on crushed silk organza.
