F*cking wicked! 3D printed, sterling silver cutlery

eragatory cutlery set

All sorts of crazy, beautiful (sometimes both at the same time!) things are made at Shapeways, and the availability of printing in Sterling Silver is producing some insanely cool items. This cutlery set by 3D modeler, designer, product designer, artist, maker, artisan and user of colorful words, Eragatory, includes a fork, knife, spoon and demitasse spoon in sterling silver. Unfortunately, with the exception of the demitasse, they aren’t for sale, probably since an 8 piece set would be a bit pricey for most (update: it’s not the price, it’s that Shapeways has a limited bounding box for wax 3d prints to be cast in silver–if you want to purchase them, you can contact the artist as he has other sources for printing them.)

You can see them, plus more from Eragatory on his website or his Shapeways store page.

Now, let’s take a tour of each utensil, along with the artist’s words interspersed along the way.

Since I’m not an artist, I don’t think I can get away with the same language, so let me just say these designs are f*cking awesome.
