Metallic Mesh Mandalas
These mandalas are based on the simple geometric definition of "mandala"; from the Sanskirt for circle. A mandala is a complex circular design intended to draw the eye inward to its center having symmetrical and radial balance. These mandalas are constructed by computing individual points along Fermat's Spiral at a constant radial angle.
The seeds placed along this type of spiral have the same pattern as found in daises, sunflowers, pineapples, and pine cones. By combing a series of spirals, mirrored around the horizontal and vertical axis, a secondary set of patterns begins to emerge. Even a slight variation in the placement angle generates a great variety of unexpected patterns. The final enhancement is the shape and rendering of the seeds. Seeds of differing shapes and overlap are placed along a composition of Fermat's Spirals to form a mesh mandala.
