People who have visited Meiswinkel's personal website have been asking, for some time, to make his designs into products. He now invites you to share his passion for mechanisms and aesthetics in what is hoped to be an exciting endeavor, selling some of these creations on Shapeways!
Each design that Meiswinkel will submit is a singular and unique creation. Unlike many of the commonplace artifacts created with Rapid Prototyping, Meiswinkel seeks to fully exploit the uniqueness of this exciting new media as well as include a rich use of classical mechanisms. Forms that are atypical, or inspiring, crafted to be of an uniqueness that cannot be found in mass-produced goods. A modern approach to artisan-ship from a designer who is both an artist and a scientist, competing with time to complete all the things he dreams to make.
Among the first offerings is his Faberge-inspired egg series. Later, expect to see more of his whimsical creations: clockwork, robots, and other wondrous machines!
If you are considering a purchase of a Meiswinkel design, you are asked to give it a good home. Keep it in a place where it can be enjoyed and appreciated. It is the earnest desire of its creator that it be loved. It was created to bring happiness.
Lastly, if you have stories about your Meiswinkel purchase, you would like to share, please send correspondence. Since part of the reward of creating things is the joy that people enjoy them, there is no economy in not letting the progenitor know you're happy!
