What is a Lithophane?

It is an etched or molded piece of artwork, that was traditionally made with very thin translucent porcelain. A modern lithophane is created by converting an image using software to create a 3D model. When printed with a 3D printer the thickness of the image is varied and when backlit the image appears clearly.

By using a quality photo we are able to convert the image into a 3D printed image as shown here of our beloved Ella who passed away a few years ago. It is important to note that the contrast is important, the higher the contrast the sharper the image will appear when turned into a lithophane.
