Sphere Sculpture Designs

Icosidodecahedron

Icosidodecahedron

I worked on two different designs to build a sphere sculpture today: a truncated icosahedron  (on the left) and an intricately woven projected rhombic dodecahedron (below and right). They were both concepts I started last summer. Both were made with 1/8″ aluminum. The truncated icosahedron is made with thirty 12″ x 4″ rectangles riveted together with 120 rivets and is 24″ high.

Powder Coating Experience

Blue Powder Coated Sculpture

Blue Powder Coated Sculpture

I recently had an aluminum ribbon sculpture finished with blue powder coating for a couple living in Vancouver. Actually, my customer was a gallery in San Diego, who was working with an Art Consultant in Vancouver who was working with the client. You can get many levels of people between an artist and the artwork’s final destination.
