Eric van Straaten's Amazing 3D Printed Sculptures for Art Exhibition!

Believe it or not, all three pieces show here were made using a Multicolor Composite 3D Printing technique. Highly detailed and beautifully colored, this very well might be the future of sculpture. Each piece by Eric van Straaten is substantial in size: "Humming" (above) is roughly 9" x 6" x 6", "Kawaii Doll" (below left) is about 15" x 3.5" x 4.25", and "Venus" (below right) is approximately 13.75" x 6.75" x 6.75". But you have to pay for what you're getting, with prices ranging from €1500 to €2750 (approx. $1962.50 to $3598.50). Each design is available in multiples, the wonderful advantage of 3D Printing, with "Humming" limited to 6 copies in Europe and 6 copies to any other territory in the World, while the other two are each limited to 3 in Europe and 3 elsewhere. I'm most curious to see what happens as this technology becomes more readibly available at cheaper prices… will we see wonderful art like these one day done in a made-to-order fashion with prices the average person can afford?
