Sculpting in Cardboard

Any material can be used as a medium for sculpture. So far, diamond and plutonium have seen limited use.

Numerous people have and do work with paper. Not sure what is was about Bartek Eisner’s work that caught my eye but I thought I’d share what I have found.

I really like that he kept the raw cardboard edge in this one:

The tree branch with the raven in it might be my favorite:

Bartek Eisner is a freelancer out of Berlin who does other work in addition to sculpture. One item that got me thinking was a foosball player he created. Makes me wonder if a 3D printed item would be fussed solid enough to stand up to being used on a foosball table?

3D Printing – Most Influential Companies

I saw a news item about the new Appinions Industry Influence Study and one thing immediately caught my eye. After Amazon’s recent addition of a 3D printing store (where you can buy 3D printed items not printers) they already rank as the number 2 most influential 3D printing company.

I haven’t dug into the report to find out how they measure that but pretty impressive for Amazon for the short time they have been involved. Study is available as a free download here.
