An icosahedron is a regular geometrical figure composed of 20 triangles. In this sculpture, the 20 triangles are expanded away from each other at a regular distance, and the points of each triangle are connected, via wire, with the next triangle over. It's basically spherical. In this piece I included a wooden bowl with an interesting piece of lined yellow glass suspended over the top. Also, for fun and color, are a few red poker chips at random places in the interior. I like the mix of symmetry and asymmetry.
