The first in an upcoming series of artistic easter eggs.
The egg's dimmensions are that of a real chicken egg, so it'll make a perfect addition to the easter table as a small decoration. The design is inspired by flora growing on other objects, as they slowly erode, revealing a beatiful and natural structure. The pattern itself nicely complements any traditional lace ornaments, and will look great as part of a larger decoration, as well as on its own.
The third in our easter egg series, and the third of five floral patterns.
This time it's based on the victorian era floral motiffs, that have a gentler flow than the others while still remaining quite sturdy and solid. The elements of the pattern are designed to resemble young sprouting branches, saplings, and vines, so it's a perfect spring themed decoration, especially suited for easter.
As always we design our decorations with the creativity in mind. Despite the basic plain colour, the nylon material is great for painting to give a little individuality to your purchase.
We are nearing the end of this easter egg subset, and we will be offering the whole five piece set altogether with a discount, hopefully by the end of next week.
As always all crits and comments are more than welcome. If you have any remarks or requests either leave a comment, or send us message.
A small shade for generic tea lights.
Utilising a floral pattern simmilar to that from our easter egg series, this oriental shade will make a wonderfull cosy addition to any dining table. The semi transparent properties of the shapeways plastic material will give a wonderfull gentle glow in dim to low lighting.
Although a tea light doesnt produce a large enough flame to melt or burn the plastic, we have changed the overall shape to increase the distance and further reduce any risk. That said, we still advise you to handle the flame with care, and ensure that everything is placed on a non flammable surface(a ceramic plate will be enough) just to be safe.
The perfect gift for the fantasy fixated signifficant other.
This small heart shaped pendant is a support cage for a fictional steam powered mechanism contained inside. It'll make a perfect addition to your steampunk costume, or a great everyday simple pendant.
The original design was made with White Strong and Flexible material in mind, mostly because of it's low price, but also due to it's ease in colouring. Natural colourings such as tea, coffee, and wine will give it a wonderfull hue and bring out the detail.
This is a small and light sculpture, that's perfect as an egg cup.
Part of our ongoing easter series this was designed as an atypical way to hold your egg for consumption.
Some easter traditions see the children weaving makeshift nests so the easter bunny could place eggs and gifts in them just after sunrise(usually leaving the kids wondering how in gods name did he get past them without anyone noticing).
This particular nest will also do nicely as a way to expose an easter egg that you particularly fancy in way that's both traditional and with a flare of modern design.
The penultimate entry in our short series of open cut easter eggs.
This time we based the design on certain oriental floral patterns. The cut is wide, creating large areas of open space, and the flora itself has a very tough look about it. The shapes, though sturdy, are made so they have a firm flow around the egg shape, creating a feeling of fast, but harmonious growth.
This is a basic template for a section of gothic catacombs, designed for miniature wargamers. It's made with a standard mianiature scale in mind so that a 50 mm high model can easily fit inside. The segment is designed to be a modular element of a whole system of catacombs, that can be set up on the fly, both for miniature battles and for rpg players alike. Due to it being much easier to paint, we advise the plastic version, however sandstone is still available. Once they are ready we will be realeasing more diverse segments, including rosetta's, different walkways and much more, so if you like this be sure to check in every now and then.
A stylized bracelet with a high tech pattern. Designed as both a cybergoth accessory, and that little something to finish off your cotume for comicon. The inner radius is about 6.5cm , however we can provide different sizes on special order. The pattern is designed to be reminescent of the classical sci-fi movies and series.
A set of two cups and a coaster, made to mimic the form of the Ba Gua Daoist symbol.
Primarily designed as espresso cups, the ying and yang, will do wonderfully as a way to serve any kind of two element drink to a special guest. Or maybe you always wanted an unusuall way to share a morning coffe with someone close to your heart, a pleasant way to share Her Ying with His Yang. Either way this will make a wonderfull and uncanny gift to someone with a more spiritual and gentle side to their personality.
The desing itself is based on the Dao symbol of Ba Gua, constructed from eight trigrams surrounding the Ying and Yang. The trigrams represent the fundamental concepts of Taoist cosmology , by describing them as sets of three lines which are either broken or whole, thus representing their earthly and heavenly aspects.
This set itself can only be printed in a single colour, however we have made its elements available for seperate purchase so you can complete your own black and white ying yang.
A single cup from our Ba Gua cup set.
Available so you can replace it if one has an unfortunate accident, and more importantly so you can have a true black & white, two cup Ying Yang.
For more details please check out the full set at our store.
This is the second in this years easter egg collection.
Just as the others this eggs dimensions are kept realistic to make it look more at home among your other easter eggs. This particular design is based on classical easter egg art found in eastern Europe among all the slavic nations. The pattern is much heavier than the previous one giving it a much sturdier look, but is also great as a basis for painting to give it a more unique look. As usuall we are offering all the strong & flexible colors, be we would like to encourage you to buy the white version. Not only is it cheaper, but it also gives you a wider variety in means to customize your eggs colouring.
This egg will make a perfect small easter gift for anyone in the family with a knack for the artistic, or just someone who enjoyes small tabletop trickets. You could even just give to the kids, alet them go crazy with the paintjob.
If you like it please give it a rating, and feel free to comment. Any crits are welcome so that each and every new product we give is better than its predecessors.

This is the first in a short series of pendants inspired by crop circles appearing all over the world.
These will try to capture the fractal beaty that can be seen in these mysterious signs. No matter if hoax or authentic, everyone who has ever seen a crop circle will agree how amazing they look and intricate the designs are.
This is just a first take on the theme, merely inspired by actual designs. The subsequent ones will be increasingly more complex, so everyone will be able to find a design that would capture their heart.
Among other things there will be a few pendants depicting exact replicas of the most beautiful design in the world.
