Laser-in-Glass

Laser-In-Glass math objects look fascinating both because of their materiality – a solid glass cube -, because of the very high level of detail, and because of the fragility of the presented math shapes.

We have no online-shop for our glass cubes yet, but you may order all our laser-in-glass objects by simply writing an e-mail to us. Four of our classics are the well-known world record (w.r.t. the number of singularities, i.e. infinitely thin points, on them) surfaces presented above. Many more laser-in-glass Math Objects will be presented here in the near future. As there are no stability-restrictions concerning the presented mathematical shapes with this method, it is usually quite easy to fulfill clients wishes for new objects.

Just contact us if you want some, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. The prices for objects which we have already on stock only depend on the size of the glass cube in which the objects are lasered:

  • cube of size 5cm (1.97in) and weight 0.31 kg: 29.90 Euros,
  • cube of size 8cm (3.15in) and weight 1.28 kg: 89.90 Euros,
  • cube of size 10cm (3.94in) and weight 2.5 kg: 119.90 Euros

Attention: These prices include German VAT. Depending on your country, there might be lower or higher costs. The shipping costs also depend on your country. Within Germany, the shipping costs are 8,90 Euros. Feel free to contact us for the exact prices which apply in your case.

Other objects require a more vertical design, such as our model of the Clebsch Diagonal Cubic Surface. The picture below shows a version in size 60 x 60 x 100 mm. Some prices:

  • 50 x 50 x 80 mm: 59.90 Euros,
  • 60 x 60 x 100 mm: 99.90 Euros.

Other sizes and forms such as cubes of size 6cm or 8cm as well as keyring pendants and others are available on request. Prices for newly created laser-in-glass objects depend on the amount of time we need to produce the data and also the number of objects your order.

The big difference of this presentation method w.r.t. the sculptures is that here there are no stability restrictions. We may have several pieces together in a single glass cube which are only connected by an infinitely small point, but the object won’t fall appart. We may even have a small ball flying above a surface without falling down!

Moreover, the Laser-In-Glass method allows you to partially look through the shape, so that you may even visualize some object inside the surface of a ball or some other closed shape. We used this, e.g., for the presentation of the famous Fresnel Wave Surface which was described by Fresnel in the early 1800s.
