Gallery 11 - James Pochert
The polyhedrons are made by creating a zig zag SCOT braid. The active cords are passed under plys of the finished braid or thru the braid to make the rings that form the polyhedron sides. Three of the pieces (Icosihedron, Cell clump and Starpolyhedron) have an additional step; some of the points of the braid are sewn together to give the rounded faces. One of Jim's pieces was in the Small Expressions exhibit this summer in St. Louis. It is the same shape as the Rhombisocsidodecahedron. Jim can be contacted by e-mail.
