• perspective hex

    perspective hex

    Eight knotted hexagons cover the surface of a cube in a pattern which is identical on each face of the solid.

  • branching unknot

    branching unknot

    Two unknots are arranged vertically above a charred wood base. The shape of the metal makes self-supporting convex and concave arrangements possible.

  • multi-dimensional hex knots

    multi-dimensional hex knots

    Two sets of interlocked hexagonal rings traverse three color fields.

  • metatronic solid face (hexahedron)

    metatronic solid face (hexahedron)

    A single shape shows four negative paths curving around the center where they would otherwise intersect.

  • penta angle swirl

    penta angle swirl

    A unicursal decagonal star intersects five chained quadrilaterals. The chain gives the impression of a five-pointed star.

  • isometric hex knot

    isometric hex knot

    Outlined knot segments are inlaid with copper wire. Each segment follows a path which eventually returns to its origin.

  • tri unicursal knot

    tri unicursal knot

    A unicursal line is inlaid in copper on the face of a hollow truncated tetrahedron. The knot creates a cognitive visual illusion of three shapes versus two. The illusion that there are sort of 3 shapes but only really 1 is something I like about this one.

  • metatronic solid (hexahedron)

    metatronic solid (hexahedron)

    Four lines make a reversed knot pattern covering all faces of a hexahedron, regardless of rotation (this same pattern can tile a plane).

  • unicursal hex knot

    unicursal hex knot

    A self-intersecting line rotates to create a hexagonal shape. The line can be followed from any point all the way around to loop back to its beginning. This was another experiment involving cut paper on charred wood. My first attempt at realizing this design was with wire in encaustic medium, shown here. Even though it…

  • lattice tile

    lattice tile

    One component of an interlocking tile extends its connectors and uses color variations to imply depth and an isometric perspective. Stained veneer is inlaid in a wood background. This piece involves a bit of experimentation with an isometric knot. The interlocking square shapes require more than one color to give the effect that they are…

  • exploded hexahedron tiled with a plane-filling curve

    exploded hexahedron tiled with a plane-filling curve

    A single line bisects a hollow cube into two mirrored sections.

  • tile hexahedron

    tile hexahedron

    A shape with interlocking edges tiles a plane. The edges of these planes bend to form a hexahedron.

  • unicursal spiral tercet

    unicursal spiral tercet

    Intersecting spirals become one line. The line can be traced from any point back to its origin.

  • tercet chain knot

    tercet chain knot

    copper knot inlaid in wood

  • unicursal pentad knot

    unicursal pentad knot

    Follow the (implied) line with your eye. The line is unicursal, meaning there’s only one line. At first you might be tempted to assume there are five sections, and of course there are, but the radial symmetry is just a property of this particular line. These are probably the most difficult knots to design because…
