Starfield Memorial Plaque
This commissioned piece was a memorial plaque for the passing of a relative. The company Sternraufe Express had a thing where you can name a star afterf a relative.
You then receive an official document stating which star in the sky has the name of the deceased. Also included is the laser etched piece of plexiglass. The glass comes with its own holder but the client wanted something more personal to display the plaque.
The piece I made holds the plexiglass plaque with an array of LED's under it and uses light pipes through the wood to represent the star cluster the named star is in. A remote controls the LED color of the plaque and the deceaseds' star. The other stars in the cluster are a constant white.
