This piece was cut individually 6 times from a laser and layered together. The type of material used for the fish was birch wood. I stained each individual layer and then hand carved the edges to highlight the piece. I encased the piece with clear epoxy and sanded it to a fine finish, once that was done, I polished it to a glass finish. The base is made from solid cherry with an oval shape to consist with the fish silo it.
