Artist Spotlight: Ulrich Schwanitz - You & Me - The Scrappies Bronze Figurines

Ulrich Schwanitz from Venlo, Netherlands creates bronze sculptures and pendants from 3D digital designs. His latest creation, the "You & Me" figurines from the "Scrappies" series represent love, affection and mutual commitment - emotions that everyone values and never loses their significance.

The bronze figurines are inspired by everything you can find in a scrapyard: old nuts and bolts, tin cans, pipes, coils, parts of ball bearings, but they are actually manufactured in a novel "3D printing" process. Ulrich is now running a campaign at Indiegogo and will personalize the figurines with two initials of your choice.

This video showcases Ulrich's truly unique gift product:
