Sine Bowl


2012
Mathematical waves exist in everyday objects, from basket weaving, to chain fences, to textile patterns; essentially, they can be derived from manipulating the basic trigonometric formula:

[ sin(θ), cos(θ), z ]

Sine bowl was inspired by basket weaving, which is essentially formed from these waves. The process of weaving was abstracted to simple trigonometric equations in space, weaving curves that wrap around three dimensional surfaces. The mathematically controlled weaving results in a vessel with an unexpected visual lightness, and a tactility that blurs the line between a handwoven textile and the digitally fabricated.
