Profiles in 3D

turning heads and bodies
  [vote for,

Imagine your profile, or of a loved one, pet or celebrity, reproduced in three dimensions. Yes, we create popular statues, columns, posts, table legs or banisters by taking a head or body outline and rotating it 360 degrees.

With industrial lathes, these unusual items are accurately and stylishly produced in the wood or stone of your choice. Just send in a silhouette photo with the form indicating the part of the outline to use, axis of rotation, material, finished size, etc.

       This is great. I love the effect of the hairline - looks like a button perched on his head.   


       ps. that's a croissant in 3D profile.

       Does it have to be a profile of a head, or are other body parts allowed?

       Please don't tell me you're thinking about what I think you're thinking.

       UnaBubba: Freeze-dried?   

       hippo: Well some parts are already rather symmetric.

       A penis frisbee. You could experiment with what penis positions produce the most lift.

       Or why not feed a cat-scan into a laser-resin rendering machine. You could make a resin cast of your skull.   

       That'd be an interesting conversation piece.

       Real or not, it's beautiful, bris.
