We feel the electricity buzzing.
A tribute statue of the brilliant Nikola Tesla. The front plate is a drawing of his engine encasement and the backing plate is the iconic power tower. We dig how the lightning bolts turned out coming out of the top.
This started out as a 3d engrave test run and then the rest of it we just conjured up on the fly and built around the portrait plate. There is something nice about giving a piece a bit of ‘chunk’ (depth) by stacking plates up to make more of an object. Glowforge is a champ at making this happen. You can pre-plan it or just take something existing and create a casing around it. Display it amongst some of it’s known context and you’ll double the interest in the piece.
Here are more detail shots of the project.
