Back to basics

Every spring, I make pollen and viruses.  Something in the air, I guess.  Their forms are so basic and allergies and illnesses are a seasonal reminder of the cycle of life.

So, I am starting a series of pollen/virus paper vessels.  The first one has dried nicely, so now I will risk the time and effort to make some more complicated forms, based more closely on the mathematical structures (dodecahedrons and icosahedrons) of many viruses.  I love to build with triangles, and viruses do too.

Here’s an image of the first non-functional half-virus bowl almost dry and accommodating my love of dramatic lighting.
