I’ve been a huge fan of the space program since I was a little kid. Here I am playing as an astronaut with my spacesuit, headset, and maneuvering backpack:
I wanted some space program ornaments for my Christmas tree and couldn’t find what I wanted, so I decided to make my own. A little time in Illustrator, some prototyping on the laser cutter, and voila!
I’m so happy with how they turned out that I launched a Kickstarter to make them available to you, too:
There are four ornaments: a Mercury capsule, a Gemini capsule, an Apollo CSM, and a Space Shuttle. They’re available in maple, walnut, mirrored gold acrylic, mirrored silver acrylic, and brass.
Please head on over to Kickstarter and make your pledge, and share the project with anyone you think would be interested. If it’s successful, I’m planning on developing more ornaments in the same style (I’m almost done with a Soyuz design) and opening an online store for them. Thanks!
They don’t light up like a lot of my other projects, but the collection of Portland, Oregon bridge clocks I just launched has been a great way to test the Kickstarter waters. They’re laser-cut from bamboo, and you can get one of every bridge in the Rose City.
