Celebrate a special person with custom silhouette art
- Made in our studio from real recycled circuit boards
- Choose your art/frame size and circuit board color
- Use the text box to tell us what to make for you
- Please use the image upload button to provide photo(s) for us to work from
- The piece is mounted on archival mat board and framed in a clean-lined black frame with glass
Frame size information:
- 5 x 7 matted to 8 x 10 (total item size is about 11 x 13 inches). Comes with a stand and hanging loop
- 8 x10 matted to 11 x 14 (total item size is about 14 x 17 inches). Comes with two loops for hanging
Designing your Silhouette
Using the personalization box, indicate who (if famous) the silhouette is to be of. If you have a particular silhouette you'd like us to use, especially if it is personal to you, please upload it using the file upload button. From the image(s) you provide, we will build a detailed rendering that captures the essence of the subject. For an idea of how the level of detail changes from an 8 x10 to an 11x14, refer to our art of Ada Lovelace.
We cannot offer detailed silhouettes in a smaller size. If you'd like a solid profile silhouette in any size, please refer to this listing: Custom Silhouette Art
Part of the expense of creating custom work is the digital workup. Since our art for Tesla, Turing, and Lovelace are already part of our catalog, they are available at our regular art pricing.
We use a computer controlled cutting machine to precisely capture the details of your custom art piece. The circuit board shape will be cut to maximize area but we leave some white space between the circuit board and the mat for a polished design. We specifically use frames that can accommodate the thickness of circuit boards. Since we work with recycled circuit boards, every piece will be a little bit different. Therefore, the item you receive will be similar in scope to what's shown in the photos, but circuit board positioning/pattern will vary.
About our Featured Scientist Silhouettes:
Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace (born 1815) was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She is often regarded as the first computer programmer.
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. In 1960 the General Conference on Weights and Measures named the SI unit of magnetic flux density the tesla in his honor.
Alan Mathison Turing was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing played a crucial role in cracking intercepted coded messages during World War 2.
