All my stained glass
work isbased on numbers. They come in any form from just counting
the piecesof glassin an object to calculated surfaces, be it in
2D, 3D or 4D in 3Space. There is no harm in skipping all this, just as it may kindle your interest if you continue. Two dimensional geometry
as laid out by Euclid is mostly unchanged to this day.New
geometries have been found and developed though, like
tesselations(tilings), projective geometry and so on. But that is not all. These five regular solids, the Platonic Solids,have relationships to one another. If all midpoints of the faces of a solid are connected to the face next to it we get another regular solid. In the case of the tetrahedron there will be another tetrahedron inside, albeit upside down from the original. When the midpoints of the faces of a hexahedron (cube)are connected to the faces next to it we find an octahedron, and, upon connecting the midpoints of the faces of an dodecahedron to the faces next to it we have an icosahedron. And this works both ways: an icosahedron has a dodecahedron in it, the cube is dual to the octahedron and the tetrahedron is, you guessed it, selfdual. With the introduction of
different rules for solid shapes Archimedes, Kepler and a long
line of others have found new shapes.
