Magnus Wenninger got me started building polyhedron models in 1970, and I've been at it ever since.


Twelve five-petal blossoms emerge from the edge-faces of a dodecahedron. Laser cut from acrylic, then assembled by hand. Each piece is custom-cut so that the slots widths and thicknesses match. The leaf-like edges of the dodecahdron are in dark green. The twelve blossoms come in six colors, paired across opposite diameters. I've never seen anything quite like this.
