rhombic-icosa-dodeca ball

from 600.00

This shape is composed of three different shapes welded together into one solid ball of geometry. The base shape is called a rhombic triacontahedron. On its own it is a beautiful shape that has 5 fold rhombic flowers on its surface whatever way you turn it. On top of that is a icosahedron that's made up of triangles. Each bar of the Icosahedron passes over the long side of the rhombus' as apposed to the dodecahedron, the outermost shape, that passes over the narrower width.  

This shape started out as a personal study of mine in order to understand how 5 sided symmetry  shapes can fit together.  Just one tap on the dodecahedron will cause the whole chime to ring and resonate. This sound can last more then 30 seconds!  There is also a bonus feature that I didn't anticipate originally, when hung under a lamp or spot light and spun there is "shadow shape" that gets made on the inside that also seems to be spinning. 

This chime is sure to be unlike anything you have seen or heard before. Each one is cut, polished , fitted, tacked and professionally tig welded by me.
