glass beaded geodesic snub dodecahedron sculpture
9" x 9" x 9"
This sculpture consists of 12,522 of only 2 types of beads, individually stitched over 335 hours.
‘The Void’ is my first sculpture made using geodesic properties to create rigidity in the beadwork. The result is a vessel that is structurally sound on its own without the need for a mould or wireframe.
This sculpture is based on a geodesic snub dodecahedron. The asymmetrical opening highlights the dynamic quality of the beadwork and transforms the experience of pure geometrical symmetry into something more organic and animalistic.
