Wood Dodecahedron Sculpture (woven-1)

This dodecahedron is typical of the Atomic Age ‘Mid Century Modern’ design of the 1950s and 1960s. They were common as Googie light fixtures in 50s and 60s coffeeshops as well as a stand alone table sculpture.

This dodecahedron is made of 60 pieces of wood and it has 20 equilateral triangles woven around each vertex. I cut the notches just halfway thru the wood where 2 pieces intersect so they nest together nice and snug. This particular one is 9″ tall, but I also make them 12″ or larger by request.
