Futuristic candle holder "Future Artefact 004"- Kai Bracher

Futuristic candle holder „Future Artefact 004“

Another fascinating artefact from the future.

Bionic structures merge into a symbiosis with a spherical, mechanical looking shell.

Did this object once have its own form of intelligence or consciousness? We do not know !

It is also still unknown to us, what the purpose of this mysterious object originally was.

As is the origin of the species, who built this artefact.

What we do know is, that it features exhilarating shapes, which, in conjunction with a candleflame, can paint fantastic images on your wall or any given surface.

This replica of Future Artefact 004 was carefully re-sculpted in virtual space and then meticulously 3D printed in metal .

romantic candle holder -Lovers- Kai Bracher

My beautiful romantic candle holder, 3D printed is steel.

Entwined and entangled, yet both stand their own ground and leave each other room to breathe.

Together they flourish more splendid than each one alone could and they carry heavy weights.

The „Lovers“ have ignited some fire and they keep it burning…

This candle holder is  the perfect gift for this other half of you that makes you a better person….

It is available here.






3D printed candle holder Future Artefact 012

3D printed candle holder Future Artefact 012 . Another beautyful artefact from the future….

In collaboration with the „Institute for Future Artefacts“ ( IFA).

This particular Future Artefact is estimated to originate from a time around 35 000 AD and it has yet to be found out, what exactly it´s original purpose was .
Scientists at IFA working hard to figure out more details about Future Artefact 012.

In the meantime we are glad to at least being able to offer this  3D printed replica of the mysterious future object.

For this purpose, smaller modifications were made, so that this fascinating relic from a distant future can now serve as an exquisite candleholder for 3 candles.

This magnificent object stands almost 25 cm wide and is 3D printed in steel  at shapeways.

3D printed candle holder Future Artefact 012 is available here.

With this tiny dragon cabinet handles you can turn your cabinet into a mystic piece of furniture and the simple act of opening a drawer into an exciting experience. Or your childrens room into an enchanted  playground. For it is said that touching a dragon brings you luck.

And here is the one looking to the left.




Dragon doorhandle 010 -3D printed dragon doorhandle

I finally finished and released my new 3D printed dragon doorhandle:


dragon doorhandle 010 .

This doorhandle is a little less ornamental and a bit more straight forward than it´s brothers.

It´s also bigger, which makes it easyer to grab.

Together with my recently added escutchons this dragon doorhandle can turn every door in a magic portal….

The pictures show dragon doorhandle 010 in polished nickel steel.

Other available finishes are: steel, matte black steel, matte gold steel, polished gold steel, polished grey steel.

This doorhandle is designed for the 8×8 mm square spindles that are used in most european countries.

The dragon is fixed to this rods in the old-fashioned way: with a steel pin, that runs through the square rod and locks the doorhandle to the rod.

Images show the version for right hinged doors. A version for left hinged doors is also available.

The version for right hinged doors is here.


new escutcheons for dragon doorhandles

new escutcheons for dragon doorhandles

A precious magical door handle deserves an adequate surrounding! This 3D printed new escutcheons for dragon doorhandles will provide it!

No matter, if you choose the more abstract escutcheons like “ the temple“ or some more concrete ones like “ the sentinel“ ( that pictures a dragon itself), these escutcheons can be freely combined with my dragon doorhandles ( or any other doorhandle for that matter…)

With currently 6 dragon doorhandles available (and counting), 4 different escutcheons and 8 different material finishes the possible combinations are almost endless.


3D printed sculpture - Oger wall sculpture- Kai Bracher

Did you notice that in many movies the hero  has a friend, who is  dumber, less attractive and clumsier than the hero himself ?
Besides that, he´s the guy  who is always good for a goofy mishap and some laughter…
They call that a sidekick and it´s most important job is to make the hero look GOOD!

I don´t know about you, but sometimes I wanted a sidekick like that in my life.

Since I never found anyone who met the necessary standards I designed and 3D printed my own little sidekick:

The Oger wall sculpture.

He is definitely not the brightest bulb in the box and he sure is always good for a laugh.
That´s why I have my Oger hanging right beside my working desk, so he can cheer me up anytime….

The Oger sculpture is available here

Exciting news:
I´m happy to announce a collaboration with the Institute for Future Artefacts (IFA).

The IFA is an international organization that searches and examines relicts from tomorrow.

IFA scientists have found a way to materialize Artefacts that don’t even exist yet. Basically they are archeologists that operate in the future.
They asked me if I could help to 3D-print some of their findings and I gladly said YES!
In exchange I was allowed to market and sell smaller replicas of these beautyful artefacts.

Future Artefact No.005

Future Artefact No.005 was found in the year 6278 on a moon of the 4th Planet of the Karlaban solar system in a side arm of the Andromeda Galaxy.

It is assumed, that it was made by the Ardianians, an old and very highly developed race, that has lived in this part of the galaxy for ages.

Then, a few millennia before, they miraculously disappeared and left only a few of these organically shaped artefacts…

The 3D printed pendant is a replica of the artefact.


3D printed candleholder LUX DRACONIS 006- Kai Bracher

After many changes my  3D printed candleholder LUX DRACONIS 006 is finally ready and for sale.

3 dragons entangled and intertwined in each other and in a bowl of fire..
The candle is hold by a rune-ornamented ring that is held in place by the wings oft the beasts.
The ring has an inner diameter of 20 mm which is pretty narrow and lets the candle „float“ in midair ( unless you force it all the way down). This was incidental, but I like it that way. So you might be able to watch a floating flame burn amidst the runering. And who knows what crazy kind of magic that will cause…
Since this is a relatively small candleholder, the print lines and the „grain“ of the steel is pretty noticeable, even in the polished version. Call it archaic….

Now onto something new…



LUX DRACONIS 001- 3D printed candleholder- Kai Bracher

new 3D printed candleholder: LUX DRACONIS 001

After a lot of work I´m happy to release my new 3D printed candleholder: LUX DRACONIS 001!

This candleholder is so big that it can´t even be printed in one part.

It has to be 3D printed in for parts, which we then weld together.
