This post describes etching the Julia Set images for my Mandelbrot Cube. Each cube face is about two inches square and made from 20 gauge sheet brass. Etching requires that a mask or resist be put on the metal to stop the etching acids or salts from reacting with the areas that are to be […]
This archive shows how I made and cast my bronze art Mandelbrot Set mathematical fractal sculpture.
The Mandelbrot Cube project is a fascinating exploration of fractal mathematics. Fractals are functions such that whenever you look deeper into a section of the curve you see repetitions and self-similarities to what you first started with. Fractals are recursive and iterative and chaotic. And, they are truly beautiful. For the bronze figure in this […]
