   Sculpture Description

Judge's comments:

Mathematics can take us a wondrous journey. I enjoyed the playful, and skilful execution of this sculpture. It is organic, scientific, well-crafted, bewildering and amusing.

I look forward to seeing the mathematical formula from whence this work has sprung.

Artist’s Statement: Mathematical shapes can be extraordinarily beautiful, with many complex formulae having intricate three dimensional representations. The Torus is one of the more common and simple, but with a little licence it can be manipulated and distorted. With 2 mathematicians in the family I have been under some pressure to create sculpture representing some of these forms, and there has been much discussion on suitable materials and processes that could represent such shapes.Meanwhile, the mathematicians are working on the formula which expresses this form.
