For a second there, I thought that this was a ceramic piece that you had made. Nature/math/physics is gorgeous. It's breathtaking to me how natural things both tiny and huge share the same "correctness" of form -- natural forms just feel right. And, I suppose it's what we strive for when we express.

Here are two of my favourite examples of macro-scale natural beauty.

1. Amundsen Sea
2. von Karman Vortices off Chile
