This is a shield made from the buttes to the south east of Chico CA, They looked volcanic. I saw them while driving by and thought, "hmm, those would make a cool map". Turns out they did.

This piece was my first intro into cutting acrylic. It is a little costly and takes a little longer on the laser, but man are the lines real crisp with no burn damage. Using 3 different colors of see-through acrylic I was able to get a total of 6 colors, using the overlaps to blend colors. All the color rings you see represent real topo lines on Washington state's Mt. Rainier. The sheets are attached with tiny little bolts and nuts. The colors that shine through this piece cast pretty cool light into the room.
