Sculptures from Fall 2022

by Alex J. Feingold

On this page will be pictures of sculptures I made in Fall 2022.

The first sculpture of this semester was started on August 25, 2022 and completed on September 5, 2022. It is a (2,3) torus knot (a trefoil knot) carved from a 2"x4"x4" block of Patagonian Rosewood. I made this because I wanted to see how this version of a trefoil knot carved on a genus 1 surface compared to the trefoil knot I carved in summer 2022 in a genus 3 surface.

Below are pictures of three wood sculptures I completed on Nov. 24, 2022. They are all (2,3) torus knots, trefoil knots carved on a torus, from 2"x4"x4" blocks of wood, one of Sycamore wood, the other two of Pau Rosa wood. They are all about the same size, 3.5" in diameter, 1.75" deep.

Below are pictures of a (3,5) torus knot sculpture I completed on Jan. 14, 2023. It was made from a 2"x4"x4" block of Lake Volta Gaboon Ebony, and is almost 4" in diameter. This is an unusual kind of wood, so I will give some information about it here, taken from Wikipedia. Lake Volta, the largest artificial reservoir in the world based on surface area, is contained behind the Akosombo Dam which generates a substantial amount of Ghana's electricity. It is completely within the country of Ghana and has a surface area of 8,502 square kilometres. Recent developments include a large-scale enterprise to harvest submerged timber from the flooded forests under Lake Volta. This project harvests high-value tropical hardwood without requiring additional logging or destruction of existing forest and, according to Wayne Dunn, ''could generate the largest source of environmentally sustainable natural tropical hardwood in the world."
