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 …


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.

Life 2.3


This carving is based on the Icosa-Dodeca 6 bands weave.  Each band made into a spiral corkscrew, so that they could all under/overlap each other.  Then Flower of Life patterning engraved in.  A sphere, carved as the Earth is continented, rattles in the center.
