Mike Leavitt’s Empire Peaks 3D-Print on Demand
Sculptor Mike Leavitt is releasing one of the first series of conceptual pop art to 3D-print and deliver to your doorstep. Leavitt is now offering his Star-Wars-themed Gandhi, Lincoln and Martin Luther King political satires to buy on demand. The 4-inch to 5-inch figures can be printed in candy-apple plastic, stainless steel, bronze, and solid gold with the 3D-printing service Shapeways.com.
Mike's "Empire Peaks" wood statue series debuted at New York's Jonathan LeVine Gallery in late 2013. Before opening night, he had the largest wood statues scanned by a local hi-tech medical engineering firm. And now you can purchase one of the 3D-printed pieces, ranging in price from $29.00 to $21,000.00 (yesh...that's gold).
