The five point star of the flower and the pattern on the ladybugs shell mimic cymatic patterns.
This is a cymatic patten made through salt vibrating on a steel plate
The series, "Hidden Worlds" is inspired by Cymatic patterns. These patterns are created when simple sine wave vibrations (pure tones) within the audible range interact with matter. The result is a physical representation of vibration, or how sound manifests into form through a medium.
Cymatic patterns can be observed in Tibetan singing bowls, Indian Mandalas and even present as letters in ancient Sanskrit. These geometric shapes mirror patterns found throughout nature, occurring in leopard prints, turtle shells and sunflowers. They inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of a complex and intricate vibrational matrix.
The one of a kind ceramic pieces found in the "Hidden Worlds" series are my attempt to capture the continually undulating tapestry of vibrations that surround us in an invisible world made of sound.
