|Rule of Three|
|Day by Day|
Here they are, the thistles are finished - and safely arrived in London already (phew).
I am fascinated by spiral patterns in nature. Two summers ago someone had placed a box on a bench, containing a series of books on the cultural history of mathematics. A note said that the books were given away, they were free to take, they would otherwise be thrown away. Being on summer holiday I could not take more than one. Leafing through it briefly I saw it contained parts about symmetry and the Fibonacci sequence. I took the book and saved it for later.
Even though not gifted in this area myself, I feel strangely drawn to it nonetheless - a kind of enchantment mingled with terror. Fascinating that math is present everywhere, on earth, in space and in all living things.
The thistles are made from other book pages though - only the stem of Day by Day is made from a sheet from the symmetry pages, though I was very reluctant to cut the book. But I felt there needed to be one direct connection to the source of my inspiration.
And all good things are three, don't listen to what anyone else says.
