Little Dedo the Gargoyle

Little Dedo the Gargoyle

From Wikipedia: “Little Dedo is a small gargoyle with pointy ears and human-like feet on the Notre Dame Cathedral. When the cathedral was built in 1160, a nun from a tiny convent in Provence who disliked the menacing gargoyles that were put on top of the building to ward off evil spirits, disguised herself as a workman, gained entrance to the work site and quickly carved the sculpture from a small block before placing it on the highest roof.
The gargoyle was undiscovered for centuries until a small boy, lost in the labyrinthine structure, stumbled off a ledge and rolled down a roof into the arms of the gargoyle. Since its rediscovery, the creature has been affectionately known as Little Dedo, the gargoyle with the crossed toes.”

I modeled this not as an exact replica, but one would certainly recognise it as a copy. The photo’s show the model printed in Sandstone. I have both a 4cm http://shpws.me/pfju and 5cm http://shpws.me/pfjx model in my store on Shapeways, available in acrylic also.

Flying Pig in Ceramic

3D printing is really moving along. Shapeways has had ceramic in its materials inventory for quite a while now…  I was messing around with random modeling in ZBrush recently when this character appeared. I finished it off and just had to get it printed. Ceramic seemed to be the material of choice. Available for $21.55 ($6.50 shipping via UPS in Canada or USA) in my store on Shapeways.

“Adrift” sculpture

This is something I’d designed quite a while ago but until Shapeways introduced a White Ceramic material there wasn’t another material I wanted to make it in. This image is a render and the actual sculpture would have a thick layer of ceramic glaze on it, but you get the idea here. It is 14.7cms wide and costs $95.

I have a short turntable video of this also that helps show the form better.

(For some weird reason the video doesn’t show up for me using Google Chrome – and Google owns YouTube! – but it does in Internet Explorer. If you have that problem here is the direct link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn0UNl_g22Y)

Easter Island Head Statue (revisited)

I decided to remodel this statue recently since I wasn’t completely satisfied with the original (posted earlier). I designed it to be printed in full-colour sandstone, but it is available in other materials also. Available in two sizes, 16.9 cm and 6.8cm.

Inukshuk “sculpture”

This is an Inukshuk “sculpture” that I created to test out Shapeways new ceramic material a few months ago. It was a test for Shapeways, too, and the material has been temporarily suspended while they determine if it will be brought back. So, for the time being, and maybe forever, this is the only model that exists…

Shapeways Introduces Silver

Shapeways.com – the company that prints my designs – just recently introduced .925 silver as a new material they offer. They put together a gallery of items they have printed in silver and my Bucephalus Horse was one of them! It looks great, I think. Direct link to the model in my shop.

Bucephalus Horse

Sorry, not for sale.

Bucephalus or Buchephalas (Ancient Greek: Βουκέφαλος, from βούς bous, “ox” and κεφαλή kephalē, “head” meaning “ox-head”) (c. 355 BC – June 326 BC) was Alexander the Great’s horse and one of the most famous actual horses of antiquity.[1] Ancient accounts[2] state that Bucephalus died after the Battle of the Hydaspes in 326 BC, in what is now modern Pakistan, and is buried in Jalalpur Sharif outside of Jhelum, Pakistan.
