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 …

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 …

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.

Second Round of Stone Carvings

These are all of obsidian that I collected from Eastern Oregon.  Sized 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 inches.  Dodecahedron, CubeOctahedron and my first Star Tetrahedron.  The range of obsidian varieties is amazing and beautiful.  Top and Bottom Dodecahedra still available. . .

The Great Stellate

The Great Stellate

This form is officially called the Great Stellated Dodecahedron.  12 pentagrams interlace to create it’s 20 pyramids.  If you start with a regular Dodecahedron and extend each of it’s 12 pentagonal faces into a pentagram, then you get what’s called the Small Stellated Dodecahedron, that has 12 pyramids each with 5 sides.  If you were …
