<p style="text-align:center;">Before and After<br />A minimal surface similar to Conic Inversion enhanced with 2 landscapes inspired by fractals as they manifest in the natural world.</p> <p style="text-align:center;">Before and After<br />The reverse side of the first picture.<br /><span style="font:12px &#39;Lucida Grande&#39;, LucidaGrande, Verdana, sans-serif; ">Maple Burl 11" x 3&rdquo;, Bleach, Inks, Lacquer<br />Base is maple ebonized with leather dye.</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;">Before and After<br />A side view that more clearly shows the form created by multi-axial turning.  The stand is also a result of multi axis turning.</p> <p style="text-align:center;">Fractal Ferns<br />A piece inspired by fractals.  Each fern shape is reflected in each of its leafs which is also reflected in each leaflet.  This would continue endlessly with a real fractal, but that was beyond my skill and tooling.</p> <p style="text-align:center;">Fractal Ferns<br /><span style="font:12px &#39;Lucida Grande&#39;, LucidaGrande, Verdana, sans-serif; ">Split leaf Maple<br />13&rdquo; D x 5&rdquo; H<br />Acrylics</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;">Fractal Ferns<br />Detail</p> <p style="text-align:center;">Fractal Trees<br />Trees made from fractal splitting of the trunks/branches.</p> <p style="text-align:center;">Fractal Trees<br /><span style="font:12px &#39;Lucida Grande&#39;, LucidaGrande, Verdana, sans-serif; ">Osage Orange, pyrography<br />7"H x 6.5"D<br />Bush oil</span></p>
