Another bronze figurine from the »Scrappies« family, inspired by everything you can find in a scrapyard: Old nuts and bolts, tin cans, pipes, coils, parts of ball bearings, and more.

Bronze figurines are traditionally made from molds and cast, but our process it very different. It all begins with a digital 3D design which is then used to build the physical model layer by layer from fine metal powders, without any intermediate steps or molds. This relatively new "Additive Manufacturing" or "3D Printing" process allows for the fine and sharp details which are normally not found on cast bronzes.

The following is an interesting video abot the manufacturing process (5min, worthwhile watching):

Enjoy !
