Laser-cut Ferrari GTO

In mid-summer, I received an e-mail from BrandMetal, a Nova Scotia company promoting the fact that they could laser-cut your logo out of stainless steel.

I contacted the owner Mathew to find out what they need to make it happen. The idea I had was to do a pen&ink sketch and have them laser-cut it. I found the contrast of a hand-rendered sketch being laser-cut from steel very intriguing.

After much stumbling around to produce something BrandMetal could actually use, I had the stainless steel cut and powder-coated in red.

Once I got it back, I hand-painted the white highlights onto the red surface. I did the N.A.R.T. logo in colour to create a focal point. 

Everything that you see in black on the piece represents my original sketch, and has been actually laser-cut out, even the Cavallino Rampante of the N.A.R.T. logo! 
Everything that you see in black in the first photo represents the original sketch. The whole piece is 25"x 10" (63.5cm x 25.4cm) and weighs 4 lbs.

I'm only doing a very limited edition of 10 copies. If you are interested in acquiring one, please contact me at

I'll be showing it off at our Goodwood Revival Market Stand #61; drop by to see it!

I'll be following this piece up with a blue Cobra Daytona Coupe.
