I created this headpiece for the 2021 HATalk Competition; The shape of the feature is called a 'hyperbolic paraboloid' - a mathematical construct; It appears curved but is made up of a series of straight wooden skewers. The skewers are hand painted and mounted onto a brushed velvet button block base.
