New Humbelle: Rabbit

‘Rabbit’ is the third model in a series of miniatures I am designing, called ‘Humbelles’. These miniature 3D printed sculptures are 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 three Humbelles available: ‘Rabbit’, ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Little Princess’. Every two months I will try to release a new one.

As you can see in the second picture, I recently decided to deliver a nice display cube to place the miniature in, if collectors would choose to do so (always better because of the fragility of the pieces). These cubes cost 15 USD (10 Euro). If you want to order those, pay me through Paypal or wire the amount as described beneath.


Rabbit - 3D printed sculpture - Price $250 (including shipping costs and VAT)

If you want to receive a Humbelle, approved and signed by the artist himself, add a model to your cart and pay through Paypal or credit card in US Dollar, or mail me your pick and full address and wire 200 Euro (including shipping costs) and/or subsequent 10 Euro for each Display Cube) through bank transfer to the following account:

3D printed selfies at PAN Amsterdam

At PAN Amsterdam, 3D printing sculptor Eric van Straaten is showing three new sculptures at the booth of Galerie Majke Husstege. Two of the scultpures, titled ‘Guinea’ and ‘Pelican’ are way out of the boundaries of the usual sizes in full color 3D prints: 70 centimeters high. The overall theme of the group could be described as ‘selfies‘.

LATEST NEWS: The piece ‘Pelican’ is being featured on the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art’s website as a representative example of work that will be exhibited as a part of the collection. Check it out here:


Hypermodern 3D prints in the oldest building of Haarlem

Upcoming weekend 3D sculptor Eric van Straaten is exhibiting his hypermodern 3D printed sculptures in ‘De Hoofdwacht’; the oldest building in the historical centre of his hometown Haarlem. Nine larger statues are placed in the period room side by side with artifacts and genre pieces of the 17th century. The atmosphere thus realized, is an exciting blend of very old and very new.

Van Straaten is also selling his line of Humbelles, little sculptures  inspired by socalled ‘Hummels’ (kitsch little porcelain figures that are widely collected). In the first month of their respective release, these figurines are available for a consumer friendly price of 75 Euro. At this moment there are two Humbelles in existence: ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Little Princess’ which are now each at the regular gallery price of 185 Euro. Only for this weekend of ‘De Kunstlijn’, visitors to ‘De Hoofdwacht’  can order both pieces together for the special price of 150 Euro.


In Dutch:

Dit weekend exposeert 3D beeldhouwer Eric van Straaten gedurende De Kunstlijn zijn hypermoderne 3D-geprinte sculpturen in ‘De Hoofdwacht’; het oudste gebouw in het historische centrum van zijn geboortestad Haarlem. Negen grotere beelden zijn in de stijlkamer naast artefacten en genrestukken uit de 17e eeuw geplaatst. De aldus gerealiseerde sfeer, is een spannende mix van heel oud en heel nieuw.

Van Straaten verkoopt ook mini-sculpturen in de lijn ‘Humbelles‘, geïnspireerd op zogenaamde ‘Hummels’ (kitsch porseleinen figuren die op grote schaal worden verzameld). In de eerste maand van hun respectieve release, zijn deze beeldjes beschikbaar voor een consumentvriendelijke prijs van 75 Euro . Op dit moment zijn er twee Humbelles: ‘ Finding Nemo ‘ en ‘Little Princess’, die nu elk voor de reguliere galerieprijs van 185 Euro te koop zijn. Alleen voor dit weekend van De Kunstlijn, kunnen bezoekers beide stukken samen bestellen voor de speciale prijs van 150 Euro.
