This is the bronze sculpture from the »You & Me« pair of figurines, personalized with the initials of my wife and my own. I had made the »You & Me« sculpture as a unique gift for our 30th wedding anniversary. She had placed them on her office desk for a while and her collegues loved them as much as we do.



Since then, I have worked on the design and developped the tiny silver pendants (which you may already have seen) and a few other size and material variations, all ready to carry two initials of choice.

The jigsaw-puzzle-shaped pedestals of the bronze figurines allow for all kind of future extensions, the easiest being their children ... But that's still future.

As always, they were designed with a 3D computer program and manufactured from fine metal powders in that fascinating, novel »3D printing« process.
