CNC Lace Experiment

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to learn a basic introduction to CNC technology from one of my glass studio mates Aaron Oussoren over at his new space Studio Huddle
This is something that I have been meaning to get into for a while now, as I have a number of potential projects percolating in the back of my mind. 
Here is an image of one of the lace patterns I work with carved out in a miniature relief with the assistance of the CNC machine. Im hoping to begin working with this some more in the near future, and will be sure to post new projects and samples as they are made.


  1. Looks great and so, so intricate. Have you thought of also doing CNC folding as well as cutting?

  2. No! I am not familiar with cnc folding, but i will definitely have to look into it! its soo funny... when i was 20, I was actually a sheet metal apprentice for a while... now that i am a craftsperson, it seem as though my education is starting to come full circle!!!

  3. I wish i could go back in time and play with our plasma cutter again!
