This is a large laser cut decorative panel with a pattern reminiscent of flock wallpaper! It's cut in thin mild steel and was quite difficult to do due to the material's tendency to buckle and bow when such fine detail is cut. 

This is an interesting issue to bear in mind. With metal in particular we can laser cut really fine detail, but if there's a lot of it in a small area it gets really hot - this can cause the material to distort (remember the laser beam is cutting at a temperature hotter than the surface of the sun!). Once we get distortion it affects the laser focus and this can cause all sorts of problems with cut quality. The moral of the story is ask us if something's possible before you sell the idea to your client!
