I've been working on this little piece for a while now. just took photos today, though! it's a circle that has been folded using a logarithmic scaling for pleats that extend from the center of the circle.

it makes a rather neat bowl shape, that goes from completely folded up (like a little seed, almost) to a shape that is almost completely flat, like a satellite dish or a (rather pleated) plate.

it holds in a great bowl position, though. very nice.

Some random trivia from Buddhist symbolism..

from the book "The Book of Buddhas: Ritual Symbolism used on Buddhist Statuary and Ritual Objects" by Eva Rudy Jansen

The 'Dhyana' is a Buddhist 'Mudra'.

A mudra is a symbolic position of the hand. The mudra is a physical expression of a particular energy.

The dhyana is the gesture of absolute balance, of meditation. The hands are relaxed in the lap, and the tips of the thumbs and fingers touch each other.

**When depicted with a begging bowl, this is a sign of the Head of an Order.**

I want a logarithmic diamond begging bowl. :-D

Not that I want to be the Head of anything.. personality cults usually end badly in history when the people realize how imperfect the 'great leader' was..

However, I was thinking about starting a dojo one day - when I am skilled enough to teach my Way... 8-$

"From listening to records, I just knew what to do; I mainly taught myself. And, you know, I did pretty well, except there were a few mistakes that I made - that I have just recently cleared up, you know… I’d like to just continue to express myself, as best as I can, on the instrument. I feel like I have a lot of work to do – still, you know, I’m a student of the drums – and I’m also a teacher of the drums too."

If you'd really like to see the bowl, feel free to check out a short movie of it's folding in action:
