This is one of my favorite abstract pieces I’ve carved by cnc.

I call it Fractal winds since it reminded me of solar winds. It is carved in cherry lumber.

Short story that is a little funny or sad depending on your view point. I took it to work to show it off. I work with highly educated college graduates, even a few doctorates, and only one person out of a dozen was a able to identify what the geometry was.

There were 5 different patterns in the series. I only carved two in the series but I didn’t think to post the second carve in the earlier post.

I called this one fractal flare.

Again in cherry lumber.

Very cool looking. I like the way the frame is integrated with the image.

How big are they? And how long did they take to carve?

Thank you and thank you.

They are about 7”x13” and they took about 1 hr 30 min each to carve. The three other pieces in the series that I did not carve are these.

First time I’ve ever seen the Mandelbrot set in wood!

You have show that Fractals can be artistic besides being important in high tech!
It’s beautiful to see them cut in wood!
