Here's a large dodecahedron sculpture I made with students at
Florida State College at Jacksonville in January 2016.
It's a scaled up variation on this smaller version
, shown in this
, which explains the design
We began by making
three-part modules and joining them into a pentagonal ring while
holding them up in the air.
Then with it resting
on the floor, we added more modules, working upward.
At this stage, we've
closed the pentagonal openings in the lower half.
Then just keep going
until all twelve pentagonal openings are complete.
The final step is to snip off the ends of the cable ties.
Here's the template. Students used a router to cut sixty
copies and I beveled the four mating edges to 32 degrees.
Thank you to all the students at FSC who
participated in the project and to Michael Cottrell for the
