Stainless steel has always been a popular choice when it comes to laser cutting, and our latest project showcases how eye-catching and detailed a design can be when using this material.

The Gift of Life Flower Seed Head was designed by Hospital Art Studio and takes centre stage at the main entrance to Derriford Hospital, Plymouth.

We were contacted by leading graphic manufacturer, Digital Plus, to laser cut several dispersed seeds as well as three complete seed heads.

Made from a combination of stainless steel and acrylic, the design symbolises the regeneration of life, and represents those who have given and benefitted from organ donations.

The design lends itself perfectly to laser cutting and we’re very proud that we’ve been involved in creating such an emotive piece of art and we hope the design will lift the spirits of hospital visitors.
