New Humbelle ‘Ananas’ – released mid november

humbelle_pineapple

‘Ananas’ (the Dutch word for pineapple) will be the seventh model in the series of 3D printed miniatures (plus minus 10 centimeters high) I am designing, inspired by socalled ‘Hummels’ (kitsch little porcelain figures that are widely collected). The idea is that people who love my work, but for instance can’t afford a bigger piece, will be inspired to collect the miniatures. At this moment there are five Humbelles available: ‘Watch’, ‘Pug’, ‘Rabbit’, ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Little Princess’. Every two months I will try to release a new one. All of these models can be ordered online, visit this page to see how. ‘Ananas’ will be released mid november. Mid september the new model ‘Angry Mermaid’ will be released.

Call for sponsors

This summer and late fall, I will be exhibiting larger sculptures at galleries in Holland, Belgium and New York. As you may know, 3D printing is a very expensive process, and artists like me don’t have the means to invest large amounts of money beforehand. That is why I am reaching out to possible sponsors of my work.

On the page ‘Latest Designs’ are some examples of the pieces I would like to exhibit. The standing figures will be around 60 cm high. What I propose is a sort of crowdfunding deluxe: if you buy a sculpture before it is produced, you will receive it with a considerable discount after it is exhibited. This way you make possible that I can do a great exhibition with larger pieces, and you get a great piece for yourself. We can even talk about small changes in the design and sizes if you would like that.

If you are interested and want to talk to me further, please mail me at sales@ericvanstraaten.com
