About

Designed, Laser Cut + Hand Crafted in San Francisco

I live and work in San Francisco, a city that inspires and delights me every day. I started experimenting with laser cut design a few years ago and quickly fell in love with the intricate capabilities of the technology. Discovering the laser cutter was a wonderful way to take the design skills I had from my background in landscape architecture and apply them in an entirely new context.

I find inspiration in the every day natural and urban forms around me and translate this inspiration into the organic and modern geometries found in my designs. My work also reflects an artistic interest in the exploration of geometry and the playful repetition of shapes.

All pieces for Folia Design SF are digitally drafted, laser cut at Tech Shop, a member based workshop in San Francisco, and then hand assembled. I use a combination of laser etching (surface burning) and laser cutting (burning through) materials that have been carefully selected for their strength, durability, and etching qualities. In addition, Folia Design SF strives to be environmentally responsible and uses renewable and recycled materials whenever possible.

I love watching my designs come to life with the laser cutter and then seeing those pieces become part of someone else’s life through use or wear. I am excited to contribute to San Francisco’s creative economy and provide an alternative avenue for people who want to support local artists and makers.

Thanks so much for reading my story and visiting my shop!

Process
