Ela designs and produces all her lasercut pieces. The process begins with an initial line drawing or sketch. This is converted into a computerised vector outline in preparation for lasercutting.

Ela uses lasercutting facilities at FabLabs in Manchester. The forms are cut from a 4mm plywood that Ela laminates in advance with genuine vintage papers ranging from music sheets, prints to posters and postcards. The result is an upcycled, completely unique,  one-off piece.
