Picard's Desk Crystal


#165

Awesome shoutout, that is quite the resumé! Also, I didn’t realize so few were made. It feels even more special!


#166

I think my crystal’s transporter pattern is stuck in the buffer :slight_smile: hasn’t quite arrived as of yet.


#167

The isolinear card rack is next in line for the desk set!


#168

Thanks for the info! :slight_smile:

My crystal found it’s forever home on my copy of ‘Shakespeare’s Complete Works.’ I think Captain Picard would approve.


#170

Indeed sir!


#171

Oh, good idea.

My crystal found its home on my desk at work:


#172

Your desk is too neat. Don’t you get any work done? :confused:


#173

Too busy gesticulating with my crystal during meetings to dirty up my desk!

HUGE thank you to Elvis (Eric_Ardros) for getting me this display stand for my Picard crystal. Since I don’t have a desk I can put it on, it’s part of my ‘nearly done’ Picard collection. The stand is gorgeous!!!


#175

That stand compliments the desk crystal well.


#176

Oh man, Elvis did a really cool job on that! I love how the chamfer sort of has facets like the crystal. Awesome work!


#177

he really did a great job, it’s so freaking beautiful. like @DigiGal says - it really does compliment the crystal well.


#178

Thanks, guys and gal! I’m very pleased with how the design of this turned out, and how it achieved it’s purpose of complimenting the crystal while not taking focus away from it :slight_smile:

That was exactly what we were going for when my go-to guy at work and I were designing this stand, lol. We wanted it to look similar to the crystal itself, not symmetrical like we did on the base for my Dark Crystal stand.

Received a desk crystal for Christmas (“Crysmas”?) and would you believe I actually use it as a paperweight?

My thanks to norbauer and all who were involved in the recreation of this iconic prop. Bravo!

Glad to be able to help bring this object into reality! Thanks so much for the kind words. :blush:
