The Intertwined Golden Love of Icosa & Dodeca

This piece is the synergy of my main muses; the Golden Ratio, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron, and Intertwining (and/or knot-work).  One of the goals of this piece was to make a sort of ‘Yin Yang’ with Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.  These two shapes each create the other, each holds the seed for the other.  Hence Icosa on one …

Quartz Trinity

Trinity Knot in Quartz Crystal

This is a quartz crystal that I collected myself.  I engraved the trinity knot with a Dremel.  Beautiful crystal that is mostly termination facets, very gemmy quality.  I’ve been doing all sorts of fun knot-work in crystals recently.  Check out my Etsy shop to see more.

GardenStar addendum

This was the first geometric sculpture and dreamweaver at this large scale that I have made.  I want to create more projects like this, so I’m posting some updated images, and hopefully people can get an idea of the scale and awesomeness.  I would love to create spaces like this for parks, playgrounds, backyards and …

Double Twist Dreamweaver

This dreamweaver is a double twist, whereas the previously posted dreamweaver has a single twist.  This one is pretty far out.  It’s like it’s got tunneling wormholes running through it.  The frame is 6 circles, 30 inch diameter, weaving around each other to create a spherical icosidodecahedron.  The different images were generated simply by slowly …

Spiral DreamWeaver

Newly made dreamweaver in a frame of 6 circles, an icosi-dodecahedron.  It’s about 2 1/2 feet around.  The dreamweaver has an amazing spinning spiral form.  It’s like it’s twisted at the top and bottom, with two awesome spiral arms around the middle.  Soon to come; a larger version with LEDs at each node.  Able to …

Tree of Life

Inspired by the traditional Celtic motif, this is my dodecahedral interpretation of the Tree of Life.  Fueled from the singularity at the center (the tree’s trunk) the past and the future (the trees’ roots and branches) entwine around each other, weaving the present (the dodecahedron that encompasses the whole).  In general the energy flow is toroidal, …

Dodeca Stars

One of my Winter projects.  Long winter nights seemed to have inspired many starry works.  This is basically a study in the amazingness of pentagrams, how they link up to make larger pentagrams, especially interesting when tiling a dodecahedron, or in this case a variation of a dodecadodecahedron.  Interesting thing about the photograph is the …

Knotwork Sphere

This is a piece of Alaskan Yellow Cedar that I carved by hand. Inspired by knotwork, working a particular 2D pattern I saw in a calendar into 3D. It is basically 15 great circles, in icosahedron/dodecahedron symetry. It is an interlaced lattice of a dodecahedron, an icosahedron and a rhombic triacontahedron. It’s about 4 1/2 …

A work in process

This sphere is inspired by the Flower of Life Sphere.  The lines are 15 great circles of icosa/dodeca symetry.  Divided up as they are, they create three nets, a dodecahedron, and icosahedron and a rhombic triacontahedron.  I intend to carve it so that each part goes over and under it’s neighbors, like three inter-woven lattices.
