MAKE is thrilled to announce a new, curated marketplace of wonderful science, tech,
and artistic creations made and sold directly by some of our favorite makers from

A. Ristau Studio

high-tech machines. His nights are spent
knee-deep in technology as well — only the
technology is often half a century old or more.
Creating art from well-made components
that would otherwise be thrown away, he

Too much stuff in your workshop? Not
to worry, these build-your-own Tinysaurs
won’t take up much room but will hone your
hand-eye coordination and sense of fun.
Each kit comes with tweezers, glue, laser-cut parts, and instructions (magnifying
glass not included).

Scientist-turned-artist Raven Hanna makes beautiful,
smart jewelry inspired by the world on a molecular level.

it herself. Stunning visually, her jewelry has a hidden
meaning for those in the know.
