Conefluence In this piece nine separate conic sections merge together into the form of a hemisphere. Since the width of each conic section is the the same, the inner edges of the conic sections also describe a hemisphere. Sold

Conefluence This work is actually 9 separate turnings that were carefully joined together. Since the width of each conic section is the the same, the inner edges of the conic sections also describe a hemisphere.
Archimedes Galaxy This is an Archimedean solid known as the truncated icosahedron. It has 20 hexagonal faces and 12 pentagons. Available
Archimedes Galaxy This form was completed almost entirely on the lathe. The "solid" is actually hollow and each face was turned on it's own axis.

Other Math Art
I often get led down another path when exploring math forms and the result does not fit into one of my series. I decided to make an “other” category to display these works.
After attending the Bridges Math/Art symposium this summer I was inspired to create some Archimedean and Platonic solids. I am not sure how fast this series will grow, but I anticipate that I will do more of these classic forms. It may build into a series of its own, but for now I will add them here.
