I would like to introduce to you the sculpture »You & Me« from the »Scrappies« figurine family. It represents love, affection and mutual commitment - emotions that everyone values and never lose their significance.
The »Scrappies« are inspired by everything you can find in a scrapyard: old nuts and bolts, tin cans, pipes, coils, parts of ball bearings.
But they are actually manufactured in a totally different, novel »3D printing« process. Each of them is made in one piece from fine metal powders.
I had initially made the »You & Me« sculpture as a unique gift for our 30th wedding anniversary, but when Christiane placed the Scrappies on her office desk, her collegues loved them so much that we thought why not share it and make it available to others.
Therefore, and for a limited time, I am offering you my work here, outside of the traditional channels of exhibiting and selling art. Each figurine will be customized with your initials of choice. I will make and ship a unique »You & Me« sculpture for every supporter, be it one or many.
Two letters fused into a 3D block. What an eyecatching way to showcase two initials! Yours will be ¾-1" (2-2.5cm) tall depending on the letters. Choose from Comic, Typewriter, Block or Script font, shown in the picture above.
A larger size is here.
Do you need a hanging loop? If neither letter has a closed loop (like O, P, B etc.) and you want to use this as a pendant, you will need that. Let me know in the instructions box please? Thanks....
Do three letters work? Sometimes, find out more here.
