Here is my latest silver print.

You can learn more about the model
Skelpod here.

Another 2 shots:

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-5tSynJyimrQ/ToUg_CnvOLI/AAAAAAAAAHA/29ampjE3M7U/Skellpod_horizonta2.jpg

I think it is a "love-it" or "hate-it" kind of design. So far, most people I showed it to in person seemed to like it.

Also, I can't make my mind up whether it looks better vertical or horizontal.

What do you think?

I actually found myself admiring this earlier today, it's beautiful!! I definitely prefer it in the vertical orientation but it's dynamic either way.

Worthy of including in this week's Friday Finds Smile

Cool doesn't need explaining, it just is!

Nice one Lincoln http://www.shapeways.com/forum/images/message_icons/icon14.gif

Thanks Paul, and Ana for the Friday finds.

Fixed the broken link.

Ana, it's a pendant but also a sculpture.

If you mean, "what does it represent?" I am waiting to see if any one can guess before I say. It is not as obvious as my previous work.

I'm gonna take a couple of guesses...
1. Union of marriage or family bonds.
2. A couple of ants that had a head-on collision, lost their legs and were fossilized in some strange metal.

The name of the item agrees with my first thought. I thought it looked like a peanut so I'm guessing skelpod means the skeleton of a pod

The look is organic, but very controlled and deliberate. It reminds me of a butterfly in its pupa stage, especially in the vertical orientation. Nice work!

Great guesses so far. In a couple days I will give an explanation of exactly what it is. For now, I am enjoying other people's guesses. Smile

Thanks for the compliments on it everyone!

Love it! Smile

No idea what to make of it though, so very curious as to what it is!
