University of Arkansas

Mathematician, Teacher, Artist, Maker. I like to play with the ways that the arts can reveal the often hidden beauty of mathematics and that mathematics can be used to produce interesting or beautiful art.

Woven Dodec
20 x 20 x 20 cm
Laser cute paper

32 pieces of paper cut into two shapes connect and weave together to form a ball mixing the dodecahedron and icosahedron. Inspired by Quintron by Bathsheba Grossman.

Bowl for Chaim
10 x 54 x 27 cm
CNC milled wood

This bowl was carved with pure mathematics. Each curve for milling was created by formulae and the GCode for milling was created using my own CAMel software.

This bowl was made for Chaim Goodman Strauss as he complete his term as chair of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Arkansas. It is included with his permission.
