I combine the firm 3fold and the softer 6fold symmetry to create a tension between the neighboring layers of these two pieces.

About the series

Through a series of subjective modifications, I derived this four-piece series from the Plato´s 3-fold icosahedral symmetry.

This is the first time I entered the blueprint pattern and made benevolent changes to it guided only by my intuition. The whole Icosa3mod series shares the most prominent features: 3-fold symmetry, a hexagonal outline, and core rotated off 36°.

Each piece is built around a different motive found in the original composition and represents a different morphology.
