Oakland-Based Artist Gabriel Schama Creates Precisely Layered Wood Relief Sculptures That Are A Delight To Explore


Each 1/8 inch piece of laser-cut mahogany plywood stacks into an exquisite union of overlapping geometry in mandala-like forms. Recently, Schama has been placing these patterns within human silhouettes for a striking contrast. Using his trusty laser cutter (which he named Elsie) he uses vector illustrations to define each layer. After cutting, each piece is assembled, glued and finished by hand.
