@spike I knew I had this link somewhere…

Love it!


#37

Cookie presses from heaven! Wow.


#38

Check out this awesome lightbox made by @jkopel on JoshForge! Beta project "the console" (Star Trek Lighted Console with Adafruit)


#39

I believe this one counts:


Wooden spiral staircase lasermade
#40

Yes indeedy, it does!


#41

Love this project


#42

I love these beautiful pieces by Gabriel Shama, which @henryhbk noted on this thread: Amazing laser wood cut relief sculptures


#43

Here’s another from our own Beta User, @maryellen! I think she really puts the Glowforge’s hand-drawing capabilities through their paces.

This sent the artist in me into a happy dance!
For me, one of the most inspiring products to emerge from a laser.

The personal, human touch is conveyed. As organic and original as a twinkle in the eye, or a smile. Far beyond the cold crisp geometry of blueprint.
Art - communicating spirit by means of matter
:tada::ribbon::heart::gift:


#45

That is PERFECT. I love it. Is that originally yours? 'Cause I’m going to quote it everywhere and I want to know whom to credit.


#46

No, I’m not that clever. I read that many years ago, and unfortunately I have no idea whom to attribute it to :pensive:
But like you, I haven’t encountered a better definition, and the words ring in my ear everytime I see art that inspires me!


#47

I could not find that quote attributed to anyone via google.

No results found for “communicating spirit by means of matter” art.

the closest I found was… you!


#48

Hahaha! Yes, I mangle quotes regularly! :thinking:
Soon, I’ll get to where I can hide my own Easter eggs :no_mouth:


#49

Here’s another one, by our own wonderful @polarbrainfreeze.

See all the details on the original post here.

Thanks for your kind words. I don’t feel like I’m in the same league as some of the others on this page yet though.


#51

Oh, you are in that league. I assure you.


#53

Well, I think I’m in Little League, and you, sir, are in the Majors. This creation probably just got you to the World Series.


#54

I’m in the corner eating dirt, so…


#55

Worst case of imposters syndrome I’ve ever seen. That is literally world-class work and I totally agree with @Jules and several others that asking anything less than $10K is undervaluing your work.

You need an agent and I know NOTHING about that sort of thing but displayed the right place I could see it fetching $25K or so. A major factor would be what a few critics think not us though.
