Anonymous asked: cauliflowers not only are examples of the golden ratio, but they make bloody good fractals too.

This image reminded me of one of your pieces!
study of a shell
ive been looking at found objects and my collections for inspiration as well
i have a collection of glass, shells and wood that i’ve found whilst beach combing and digging in the garden
these studies are of a small piece of shell or bone which is around 1.5cm long i think there is potential to work with the patterns on a number of scales
After a tutorial with my print tutor Tom, I’ve decided to do a lithography print. This method appeals to me as i can directly apply the cauliflower onto the limestone. It’s a print method that seems very connected to the object itself.
I was looking in the market for a romanesco cauliflower, but i don’t think they come to Cardiff.. so giving up i bought a regular cauliflower and whilst taking a photo of it i realised that it’s a beautiful example of the golden ratio.
