Conefluence

Much of my work is inspired by mathematics. 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. An interesting exercise in geometry. Hemisphere- Big Leaf Maple Burl, Dyes, Lacquer, Colored Epoxy Stand- Maple, Dye, Acrylic Rod
