Technique: Laser-Cut Pattern Making

Laser cut pattern making has been part of our process at Claire Crowe Collection since the very beginning. We start with a sketchbook and pencil.  We then translate those sketches into patterns that are cut by torch or machine.  

A simple pattern becomes beautifully complex with attention to detail.  Texture, scale, framing, patina, and paint all add depth and distinction.  Texture, in particular, lends a graceful, weathered character to iron. Processes done by hand make a difference, even when you can’t quite put your finger on what makes it special. We believe in using our hands whenever possible.
