I started Etchmaster Australia in 2021 as I have a passion for creating and working with my hands to take raw materials and turn them into useful or beautiful objects.
I create mostly home décor and small furniture, including wall hangings, side tables and ornaments. In particular I like working with mandalas and multilayered designs as they have such intricate patterns and I enjoy seeing them come to life once painted and framed. I hand make every piece of my products in my workshop.
I start with raw timber and mill it down to the size I need for the project I’m building. Then, depending on the piece I’m creating, I either stain, paint or seal the timber. From there I start building the frame or the table and while I’m working on these parts my laser cuts the fine, detailed layers. Once the laser is done cutting the detailed layers I then glue each layer to the next to create one solid mandala inlay for either the frame or the table. Working with natural timber ensures each piece is its own individual artwork with no two being the same.
