City: Princes Risborough
Hazel uses a flat-bed laser to etch and cut her intricate designs into a variety of materials, specialising in wood and mirrored acrylics. The entire design process takes place in Hazel’s garden studio in Bucks where her original sketches are transformed into computerised vector designs before being laser cut and hand finished.
Hazel has had a passion for creativity since school and was drawn to the precision and delicacy of traditional paper cutting during her time living in Hong Kong. In 2011 she attended a summer school with a laser-cutting artist and fell in love with the intricacy that can be produced. Having juggled her creative side with working full-time in London Hazel made the move to set up her own laser-cutting studio in 2013.
