Is that you, Tweety?

Is that you, Tweety?
Take one popular kids cartoon character, pluck it back to its bones, and model into a cool 3D printed charm. The result is slightly macabre, but mostly dainty and beautiful.

This, from the imagination of Wellington-based 3D modeller/designer Dylan Mulder.

Dylan won the New Zealand category of last year's World of WearableArt and wowed audiences with his Samurai-inspired garment – made predominantly of 3D printed material. Since then, his portfolio has grown to such a point that we'd label it 'prolific'; but let's get back to that Tweety bird skull.

Available from the Shapeways store under his label Mulder & Skully, it's printed into a pure brass pendant and plated with 22k gold and part of a collection of other 3D printed charms, from gothic long-beaked bird skulls to nylon plastic Lego rings, in a rich array of colours.

Let's stop for a minute and think on this – local designers are 3D printing this sort of stuff now; how cool is that?!
