Polymer I-Reliquary

Dinkel on PCDaily

If you love your electronic devices as much as I do, you’ll totally understand Georg Dinkel’s newest polymer I-Reliquary, a comfortable throne for your iphone.

This elaborate mixed media housing for an iphone is a shrine to technology (though Georg doesn’t own an iphone). He admits that his family uses ipads and Macs.

PCD featured his first shrine some time ago. He’s added more and more complexity to his pieces and skillfully documents how he builds the gilded fretwork out of polymer.


Georg was a photographer for Staedtler Products (the maker of Fimo) for years before he ever opened a package of polymer. You’ll also sense that he’s long been a student of architecture.

Georg’s work-in-process shots are fascinating even if you don’t know German. A 3-minute video shows his creations. Here’s one on YouTube. The in-process shots are on his website.

    Another testament to the versatility of this amazing medium by an amazing artist/architect!

      Holy smokes. I’m at a loss for words.

        Jaw-dropping. This is how I want all of my future iPhone chargers to look.
