Alabaster Torus Knot, Figure 5
Alex J. Feingold, Binghamton University--SUNYFollow
A (5,3) torus knot whose cross section is the k=3 hypocycloid; approximately 9" in diameter and 3" thick.
Sculpture was made by carving a 9" x 9" x 3" piece of alabaster, purchased from Stone Sculptors Supplies in California, and prepared by rounding off the corners and drilling out a 3" diameter cylindrical hole in the center. Completed some rough sanding to flatten the faces before beginning serious carving and produced lots of dust.
