View Full Version : Rotational symmetry continued...

Following Sam's thoughts on rotational symmetry I've ended up here (picture). I am not all that comfortable with it, but have found it an interesting excercise, especially taking something perfect and upsetting it, as with the off center hub in two axis.
There is a rigidity in the loop, where I feel I have failed, but I've learnt a few things...

Hi, Oh no, not rotational symmetry, AGAIN! Seriously, I love the side view but I had trouble with the front view until I enlarged the thumbnail. That made a lot of difference. It's an intriguing piece and one I'd love to experience in person. I can't quite put my finger on it but there is something about this piece that makes me want to come back again and again for another look. What is the size of this piece?
My thoughts were to do this piece horizontally with the straight rods extending below the curved plate and have the rods attach to the base so that the curved plates floated a foot or so off the ground. But, that's me and I'm not critiquing here, just expressing another idea.
As usual Robert, another well done piece of sculpture emerges from your studio!
Have a great day,

I love that, Robert! It's like a toy for my eyes...
