An espresso cup specially designed with fins, to ensure the successful deployment of your rocket fuel. All systems are go! Paraboloid bowl holds approximately 1.5 fl oz. or 45 mL. (Note that I previously claimed the cup held 60 mL. While my 3D modelling software still reports that as the internal volume, some combination of the printing process and glazing is robbing me of internal volume. Contact me if you'd be interested in a larger, more expensive 60 mL cup.)
After receiving feedback from Shapeways, I've created a slightly revised model for the cup. I'm told that this model will be easier to print and glaze, leading to a more reliable product. The changes are minor -- it's a little wider, a little heavier, and has more rounding on edges that were previously sharp (a 3D rendering shows the differences above).
Update (April 13th, 2013): The cup has had a great run on Shapeways, and I deeply appreciate the attention and positive feedback it has received. The bad news is that I've got to stop offering it for sale here. The good news is that the cup is now available commercially! It's being manufactured by Fred and Friends, sold under the name "Blast Off! Espresso Cup Set". It's already available for purchase online (perpetualkid.com, thinkgeek.com), and I'm sure you'll be able to find it in your favourite housewares store soon.
Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge. The densely interconnected structure is at once airy and strong.
The lamp comes with an eco-friendly 3-watt 200 lumen LED light fixture with three bright Cree LED's that will last for 6 years of continuous use. It is UL-listed and works off a 120V or 240V outlet.
Please contact us at http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/contact.php to receive the lighting components for the lamp. We will send them to you free of charge if you purchase the lamp shade.

The perfect romantic gift for that someone ''special''...
I made this for my wife, which is a huge fan of Shakespeare and ''Sonnet CXVI'' is her favourite. The first two verses are engraved on the external surface of the ring and a dedication is engraved on the inside. The text is placed around the ring in a helix pattern, so that it can be read by simply revolving it in one direction.
The complete Sonnet CXVI:
Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments. Love is not love, Which alters when it alteration finds,or bends with the remover to remove. Oh, no! it is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests.. and is never shaken. It is the star to every wandering bark whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love is not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle's compass come. Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out.. even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
