Elias Wakan - geometric sculpture in wood

Elias's work is a fine blend of aesthetics, mathematics and craftsmanship. Assembling complex shapes from simple pieces of wood, each carefully cut, Elias strives to 'show how complexity derives from simplicity.'

One can get a first impression of his work from this view of Drumbeg House Gallery. If you have time for a long read, Elias answers the question 'How Do You Make These'? There is obviously a fair bit of trial and error, as detailed in Moebius Mistake, and 'How Long Did It Take?' tells the story of his sculpture called Triumph.
