Portal Gun Made from Wood, Metal, Glass and a Big Bowl of Awesomesauce
September 2nd, 2012
This wouldn’t be the first, most accurate, or even the first reinterpreted version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Gun I’ve ever seen, but it might just be the most awesome. Instead of being made out of slick plastic or fiberglass, this version is handcrafted from more traditional materials.
Sculptor Duncan Shirah created this Portal gun using wood, metal and glass, and it has an elegant look all its own. It’s almost like Chell got transported back to the Victorian era at some point during her time-travel escapades in Portal 2, and was bestowed with this wooden beauty. I wonder what a wooden Wheatley with a glass eyeball would look like? Or a brass GLaDOS?
There’s no indication if Duncan would consider building more of these if you offered him enough money, but you can check out more of his works and get in touch with him over on his website or Facebook.
