Since February 2017, our catalogue is online on math-sculpture.com. On this website, we aim to present all our mathematical sculptures, eventually. The main advantage of using this catalogue over using our shop on shapeways, is the fact that it is much better...

The shape of the M in the MO-Labs-Logo is quite special and closely related to the subject of this blog. It belongs to a surface with a so-called cusp singularity, sometimes also called A4-singularity. Singularities of surfaces are very special points. In most parts...

Kummer surfaces belong to the most famous mathematical surfaces. E.E. Kummer studied them starting in 1864. They have 16 singularities which make its shape quite unstable so that we only sell it as a laser-in-glass Math Object. Our sculpture is thus a smoothed version...

The Clebsch Diagonal Surface is certainly one of the most famous surfaces in mathematics. It was described by Alfred Clebsch in 1871. It is a very special example of the so-called cubic surfaces which is highly symmetric and on which there are 27 lines in a very...
