“When I heard about lasercutting for the first time back in 2015, it was love at first sight. And also a bit of a blind crush. Because without any knowledge about the machine or it`s technique, I signed the order sheet of my first lasercutter.

In the past 5 years, I’ve done countless hours of cutting and engraving, experimenting with various materials. And yes, dealing with lots of trial and error. By now I can say that I know a thing or two about lasercutting,  but I still continue to learn about this fascinating technique with every new project.

The name HOSHII? It is Japanese. I graduated from university with a master’s degree in Japanology, but I left that career path after a few years of working for various companies. The word “hoshii” refers to a feeling, a desire, a kind of love at first sight with objects. That is exactly the feeling that I want my lasercut objects to evoke.”
