Wireframe Torus


This is a cool example of wire-sculpture:  a single piece of wire woven into the shape of the torus.

(I doubt you can play pool on this one, though.)

The author of the blog post, George Hart, is the proprietor of the soon-to-be Math Museum, and it seems he is something of a sculptor himself.  According to the article, this piece was on display at a conference held by the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts.  Poking around their website and admiring the the multitudinous mathart is a pleasant way to pass a little time.
