If I were forced to pick only one personal favorite of all the cool stuff I’ve blogged about while working for Make: Online, it would probably be Mark Ho’s original Zoho Artform figure. This is his latest version, made mostly from aluminum and available in ten anodized colors. I have no idea what they cost, and I’m sure I don’t really want to know, but I’d love to see more machinists following in Mark’s footsteps and making pure “machined art.”

    I fully agree this is an amazing art piece. I want one on display in my office! How do I actually get my hands on one?

    Thanks for the feed back. I went on their actual webpage to see how to get one. They even have cute little ones called Zohitos going for around $150 incase you dont have the bugget for the ZoHo model.
    I think these would even be great for gesture drawings hold the form and the value better than the old wooden ones. (speaking to my inner artist)

    I’d like to see them come out with something in the $500-$1000 range as well. What do people think about that?
