For those who thought their days in geometry classes would never lead to anything, take note of these magnificent spheres, whose inspiration lay in science, nature, and spatial mathematics. Handmade of mottled stoneware by Brooklyn-based sculptor Pamela Sunday, each Hive is essentially a hollow sphere covered with smaller hemispheres that are attached and covered with small balls of soft clay. Sunday uses a wooden tool to make indents in these small balls, in essence morphing them into cells that push against one another. After drying for several weeks, the sculpture is fired in an electric kiln, with each indent filled with a reflective gold-luster glaze. The result? A private universe that glows like a jewel.
