Eva Hild uses an intuitive, incremental approach to create fascinating ceramic sculptures representing 2-manifolds with interesting topologies. Typically, these free-form shapes are two-sided and thus orientable. Here I am exploring ways in which similar-looking shapes may be created that are single-sided. Some differences in our two approaches are highlighted and then used to create some complex 2-manifolds that are clearly different from Hild’s repertoire. View Full-Text
