Yes! The statues and figures we create are all 3D printed, regardless of scale. We take a model, scale it to the size we want, give it some thickness, and then chop it up to fit on the machines in our print farm. Then, we begin painstakingly slicing, printing, and assembling the pieces. Certain projects require fiberglass, ceramic thermal paint, or other exterior treatments to provide rigidity and outdoor resiliency. Then days of surface finishing and finally the fun part –paint.
With some limitations on copyrighted art, we can produce anything you’d like. Whether it’s functional pieces or stationary art, our abilities allow us to create the artwork of your dreams! Dream bigger!
Absolutely! Please contact us for current statue availability and rates. We provide delivery and pickup, and can even stay as photographers for your event.
As a young child, Guy asked his parents if he could raise homing pigeons. Upon their acceptance, he built himself a ramshackle pigeon coop and may or may not have kidnapped some rando pigeons from a park to begin his flock.
Ever the scientist, and with notebooks in hand, Guy began to document the birds, their habits, their numerous offspring, and their behavior. After learning about birds and their use of magnetic north to home themselves, Guy set out to test some theories. He took two of his best pigeons, duct taped a magnet to the head of pigeon number one, and rode them out into the Arizona desert on his bicycle. After riding wayyy too far out, he released the pigeons and began the journey home. There, he waited (notebook in hand) for their return.
Pigeon number two arrived promptly that evening. Pigeon number one… didn’t. He arrived much later (magnet still taped to his head!) and quite distressed.
It’s this story of curiosity, perseverance, and creativity that lead Lisa to believe that Magnetic Pigeon Head would be a great band name. We chose that moniker for the business we started together –hoping to continue the values of that story with our creative and curious work.
