From the tiniest microbes to the largest mammals, nature is an infinite source

of the most intricate and unusual designs we can imagine.

Ontogenie interprets these patterns and forms with 3D-printing

so that you can hold a piece of nature in your hand.

About Ontogenie

Inspired

Ontogenie designs are inspired by science and by the unusual forms found in nature. I am fascinated by the drawings of Ernst Haeckel, the photographs of Karl Blossfeldt, and Art Nouveau.

Handmade

Ontogenie jewelry is sculpted in the virtual world of my computer and made real by 3D-printing and lost wax casting, one piece at a time.

Globally available

Ontogenie ships internationally from Shapeways and Etsy. Do you want your 3D-printed piece as quickly as possible? Ordering from Shapeways is your best bet. Would you rather have a completed piece of jewelry in original Ontogenie packaging, and you’re willing to wait a little longer? Place your order in my Etsy shop.
