One December in search of a unique gift, Ali Harrison decided to try a new craft. Using a borrowed box cutter and her kitchen cutting board, she created her first paper cutting. After falling in love with cutting paper, Ali armed herself with a sharper blade and an actual cutting mat.
At first, all her designs were hand cut originals - but when it was near impossible to keep up with orders, Ali began laser cutting her designs. Preferring a blade to a pen, she first creates her designs by cutting paper by hand. These intricate, unique patterns are then transformed into laser cut homewares.Minna Posted on September 10, '17

“My creative process centers around the utilitarian object and the features that make it easy and pleasant to use: functionality, design, color, tactile appeal. I’ve always admired the skill of my ancestors who, with very little, took time to fashion everyday utensils from humble materials such as wood and hemp twine. The simple beauty of these handcrafted treasures still moves us in present times. I want to express that same spirit of resourcefulness with contemporary flair, for today’s homes. ”1 2 3 … 12 Next »
