In the week that I experimented with the laser-cutter at school, I decided to make something for my good friend and old flatmate Pato, who got married a month ago. Being unable to attend the ceremony back in Mexico, I chose to do something that they could touch and smell and that represented the love and vows he and his wife took. This wedding badge is an expression of my thoughts, wishes and the date when they got married. The pieces were enhanced by the wood and its tactility; it even translates on a thin piece of paper! Also, the dash of colour added a vibrant accent.
I got inspired and experimented with textures and images too!
An attempt in balsa wood, and a splash of orange.
Part of the process: my cardboard “protection” that went under the wood while cutting it with the laser-cutter.
