24 Tendrils

This piece combines a ceramic polyhedral form with organic fingers that are formed from willow branches. The polyhedron, known as a pentagonal icositetrahedron, has an opening in each of its 24 faces from which "tendrils" emerge that are suggestive of plant growth or possibly appendages of an insect or sea creature. The sculpture was completed in September of 2015 and measures 12" in diameter and 17" in height.

Ceramic sculpture of a 24-sided polyhedron with wooden fingers.
