Pearls From the Forest

The upper construction is comprised of 60 spheres (a Bucky Ball) surrounding 12 spheres (a dodecahedron) surrounding a single sphere. The main base sphere is an icosahedron built from 80 mitered triangles.

      This is the second in a series of sculpural pieces that were inspired by the C60 molecule know as a Buckyball (after Buckminster Fuller). A 3/8" steel rod holds everything together and all the upper components rotate freely.

      This looks like the work of Malcolm Tibbetts. He is the only one I know with this much patiencs, and it is up to his usual high standard.

      Amazing!!!!!!!!!!! As one who was fortunate enough to attend classes under Bucky, I think he would approve.

      Malcom's work fascinates me. His designs and details amaze me. I also wonder how he gets his ideas and develops the designs (I can't even spell dodecahedron, much less design one....)
