This 3D printed bust of Michael Faraday, British Electromagnetic scientist. Anyone who has studied Electrical Engineering or worked as an Electronics Technician is familiar with his work in Electromagnetics in that they have applied his theorems in EMI shielding, or even in those goofy flashlights you shake to operate as seen on TV. This is perfect for any EE, or ET student or professional out there, and would look great on a desk, shelf, or nook. Faraday is one of my personal heroes, and I felt a worthy tribute needed to be made to be displayed in my own office. This one is printed in a marble and bronze PLA, giving it a realistic stone look and a surprise whenever someone picks it up to discover it's actual weight. It is more durable than alabaster or plaster, and is washable with lukewarm soapy water for easy spring cleaning. It comes on a custom plinth that has his lifetime on the front, and the quote:
"Nothing is too wonderful to be true, if it be consistent with the laws of nature"
It stands 7 inches tall, about 3.5 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. If you'd like different information on the back or front, please put it in your comment when you check out. If you'd like a 12" version like my presidential busts for $59.99, please use the "request custom order" button.
Michael Faraday 22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was a British scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.
Although Faraday received little formal education, he was one of the most influential scientists in history. It was by his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics. Faraday also established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. He similarly discovered the principles of electromagnetic induction and diamagnetism, and the laws of electrolysis. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology.
As a chemist, Faraday discovered benzene, investigated the clathrate hydrate of chlorine, invented an early form of the Bunsen burner and the system of oxidation numbers, and popularised terminology such as "anode", "cathode", "electrode" and "ion". Faraday ultimately became the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution, a lifetime position.
Faraday was an excellent experimentalist who conveyed his ideas in clear and simple language; his mathematical abilities, however, did not extend as far as trigonometry and were limited to the simplest algebra. James Clerk Maxwell took the work of Faraday and others and summarized it in a set of equations which is accepted as the basis of all modern theories of electromagnetic phenomena. On Faraday's uses of lines of force, Maxwell wrote that they show Faraday "to have been in reality a mathematician of a very high order – one from whom the mathematicians of the future may derive valuable and fertile methods." The SI unit of capacitance is named in his honour: the farad.
Albert Einstein kept a picture of Faraday on his study wall, alongside pictures of Isaac Newton and James Clerk Maxwell. Physicist Ernest Rutherford stated, "When we consider the magnitude and extent of his discoveries and their influence on the progress of science and of industry, there is no honor too great to pay to the memory of Faraday, one of the greatest scientific discoverers of all time."

This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machine to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine.
Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. All of my items I list I personally test to ensure they meet my stringent standards. All items are printed in PLA, an organic non-toxic plastic made from corn and is biodegradable, yet very strong. PLA will not degrade under normal use, but will break down when buried.
If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!

Payment prior to starting work or initiating delivery. I can accept Etsy payments or paypal.
I will ship as soon as your item is ready, in most cases within a couple days. If I'm backed up, I will let you know sooner rather than later. As soon as I ship, I'll provide you a tracking number. For the holidays, here's the deadlines from the USPS:
Holiday Mailing Deadlines
Mailing Within Contiguous US
Make sure your mail and packages arrive in time for the holidays by mailing before these recommended deadlines, excluding Alaska and Hawaii.
Send-by dates for expected delivery before Dec. 25th (Actual delivery date may vary and is based on origin, destination, Post Office acceptance time, and other conditions).
December 14 — USPS Retail Ground®
December 19 — First-Class Mail®
December 20 — Priority Mail®
December 22 — Priority Mail Express®
For Priority Mail Express® shipments mailed December 23 through December 25, the money-back guarantee applies only if the shipment was not delivered, or delivery was not attempted, within two (2) business days.
It will take me at least the minimum number of days (i.e. if the item says 5-7 days, 5 is the minimum it will take me to make it and ship it) to make the item and get it in the mail, so please add that to the USPS deadlines to ensure delivery before Christmas.
Etsy shows the text "VAT included (where applicable)" under the price of all items that ship to the EU. That is a general blanket statement which only applies to EU sellers who are VAT registered. I live in the USA, I am not VAT registered, no VAT is included in the price for any of my listings. VAT/customs/duty charged by your country are the "BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY*. You will have to pay VAT and additional charges upon receipt of your purchase. Items returned for non-payment of VAT or customs will not be refunded shipping and will be subject to a 25% restocking fee.
Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
All items are sold as-is and are made on-demand, so I don't exchanges.
I accept returns within 30 days of delivery, all that I ask is that you pay the return postage.
If an item is damaged in shipping, please take a picture and contact me via conversation. If it can be repaired I'll ask you to ship it back to me and I'll fix it.
Requests for cancellations made after I have already started working on an item will not be honored.
A quick note on turn-around times - If you see "QTY 10" for a given item, that doesn't mean I have 10 made and they will ship instantly. It means I can make 10 of them inside of the advertised delivery date listed. If you ask me for an estimated shipping date and wait 5 days to actually buy the item, the ship date will slip to reflect the delay in purchase.
