Crucifixum Fractalum Mathematicae - Candidum Unum - 3D PrintedMandelbulb Espresso Cup 3D printed in ceramicsCosmographic Overdose - Fractal Finger Ornament
Mandelbulb Espresso Cup 3D printed in ceramics
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Have you ever thought of having a cup of espresso in an authentic fractal cup?
- I did, so I had to make one, the first of it's kind - and I am hooked!

The fractal surface of the mandelbulb guarantees to keep your coffe warm and your fingers cool.
A more unexpected feature was that it is impossible to overturn it! - The minibulbs won't allow that.

OK Torsten, now I get a clearer image of what you mean.
I agree with the loss of fractal detail in this one, of course I was hoping for more of the mini minibulbs to be visible (you can see them on the rendered image of the model at shapeways) , but this is the limitation of this material and I have to accept that.

And with this and all other 3D printed objects - the image does not give the feeling you get from holding it in your hand, this one is no exception. I love to hold it. smiley

I do all my stuff for my own pleasure, and for everyone out there with the same weird taste as myself (freaks, nerds, retards...) regardless of any rules there may be. wink

Peace! and glad you like my work - and again: I like to hear your oppinions! A Beer Cup

AND THANK YOU KNIGHTY!!!  A Beer Cup

...that the "loss of fractality"...should make it a piece for freaks and nerds.

Ok, it's also difficult for me, to express an opinion in english. The loss of fractality is just sad - no matter for what reason. A piece for freaks and nersds it'll remain because of its "language of forms" (in my humble opinion).

And I do not care if it looks rococo or modern (whatever that is?)  I am very fond of the old masters.
So do I!  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rococo; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modernism
The problem is (again in my humble opinion), that the old masters, that I appreciate are way, way further back in time. In art, the late 18th century was a real turning point! Maybe a point of no return.
I was educated with the maxime "form follows function". Maybe a strict maxime and my own artistic works are almost free of that maxime. Luckiely i only need this in my job. But I am still influenced by that, when it comes to design.

And btw I hope you understand this as constructive criticism of your critique.

Be sure I do! That's why I'm here. We do not have the unreflected eulogies here, like they are common on DA.  grin

Be aware, that I still admire your work. wink

Heh, Thank you for your opinion Torsten, always glad to hear what people really think.

But I really do not get your point that the "loss of fractality" (which in this case depends on the glazing btw, it very well illustrates the limitation of the detail level of glazed ceramic 3D prints) should make it a piece for freaks and nerds.

So if it was more fractal it would not be for nerds? - I really do not get your logic.

And I do not care if it looks rococo or modern (whatever that is?)  I am very fond of the old masters.


Thank you for your input anyways!  afro

Pretty nice idea, but I've got mixed emotions with pieces like that. On one hand this is real pioneer-work and I really appreciate your experiments, showing us what's possible to date. On the other hand the loss of fractality is dramatic and pieces like that seem to remain pieces for freaks and nerds - not really competitive. Artistically it looks more like a fallback to baroque or rococo, than modern.
I hope you forgive me the criticism, but just because I really like your work, I needed to say that. I hope you understand this as constructive criticism. wink

Thank you! I look forward to see your black copy Jérémie!
And a coffe mug might be in process Louis... Hopefully with more visible minibulbs, but it will be more expensive, price grows with the cubic of the size in this business I'm afraid...
