In 2007 I started doing some experiments with making ceramic volumes that tessellate 3 dimensionally -- with the goal of using repeating units to aggregate into large compositions/sculptures. One of the first forms I started working with was the Truncated Octahedron, an Archimedean Solid and a space filling polyhedron (meaning it tessellates in 3 dimensional space). I came upon this shape pretty empirically: by cutting equilateral polygons out of foam core and taping them together to construct polyhedrons. I started making molds from these models and casting them in porcelain.
