A spider and web laser etched into a polished disc. An instantly recognisable motif, but I also quite like the trompe l'oeil effect of a kind of 'billowing' vortex that the stylised regular web form produces. Simon Carter is unusual in using the technique of laser etching as part of the design concept. It allows us to develop precision and detail on a very small scale. I love to explore the creative possibilities that new advances in technology open up.
