Selection of materials in the creation of their works, very responsible and complex work. After the idea and design, the selection of resources from which to create an art object begins. You need to consider weight, flexibility, color and quality, you should read elite writings on this topic, so as not to regret your choice in the future. The form of Dragonflies consists of twelve congruent parts arranged with octahedral symmetry in a form based on the third stellation of the rhombic dodecahedron.  The laser-cut wood components are each a subset of the complete face of the stellation, designed so that it does not intersect with the other eleven identical copies of itself. Interweaving and assembling the rigid physical parts was an interesting challenge.

"As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, my work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic."
