David Newman “Phyllotaxis 1”

David Newman (Widecombe in the Moor)- “Phyllotaxis 1 (in Kilkenny Limestone 500mm x 500mm x 100mm)

“This design is based on Fibonacci spirals such as are found in a sunflower. I am very interested in patterns in nature and the balance between geometry and natural randomness.
Also I like the fossils in stone which accentuate the feeling of connection with nature.”
