I have always been fascinated by the interplay between mathematical ideas and visual representations of those ideas. I love creating beautiful objects, especially when those objects can also serve some practical purpose.

Fibinocci Trivet
12 x 12 cm
Cotton Thread

This trivet consists of 12 rings. Each ring has the same number of consecutive segments as the corresponding Fibonacci with the first two rings being solid and the last having 144 distinct segments. Colors for segments were chosen so that no two adjacent segments have the same color.
