With the aid of a computer controlled cutting machine, recycled circuit board is cut to shape. The piece is mounted on archival mat board and framed in a classic, clean-lined red frame with a white mat. The approximately 5x4 inch (12.5x10 cm) frame is outfitted with a fold out stand for setting on a ledge. At 5x4 inches, this is a small framed art and is similarly sized to a greeting card. The piece is set behind glass.

You will receive a piece that is made to order and very similar to the one shown in the photo.

Circuit Breaker Labs

Handmade by Scientists and Artists

Every project starts with broken electronics

We primarily work with computer motherboards and we find ourselves enamored with their color. It’s how they’re made, so we build our designs around the colors we can find. Orange and purple are the rarest.

Hand and computer-operated tools shape the circuit boards

This router, for example, enables us to carve even the most intricate designs that would be impossible by hand. This also ensures that we can perfectly capture your logo, pet silhouette, or skyline.

Finished by hand

Finishing work is done meticulously by hand so that we can ensure every piece we send out meets our quality standards. Fragile items are packed with care to ensure a safe arrival, and small items are always gift-boxed.

About Us

Because Science is a love letter to all things STEM, particularly the fusion of art and science. A lot of the products you’ll find here and in our shop are handmade in our very own design lab, while some are the brainchild of other creators. We celebrate it all because science literally makes the world go ‘round.
