Woodworker Keith Williams of Oddball Gallery in Minier, Illinois creates geodesic spheres that steadiness math and artwork. Every sculptural kind is created from 170 wooden triangles which are then hand-assembled into 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. Subsequent these shapes are glued collectively into an angular 180-sided ball that’s positioned onto a lathe and remodeled into a totally easy sphere.
As Williams removes roughly 1/4″ of wooden, pure rings from the plywood are delivered to the floor, masking the ultimate piece in a dizzying array of concentric circles. You possibly can watch a behind-the-scenes have a look at how these objects are made within the video above. FInd extra peeks into the Oddball Studio on Williams’ web site and Youtube.
