12 STAR BALL

I call it Twelve Star Soccer Ball as it is surrounded by 12 pentahedron stars. It is built on the same principle of the soccer ball ( 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons ), but each pentagon is made of 5 black triangles and each hexagon is made of 3 white and 3 black triangles. As a result, this ball is made of 180 triangles. The stars were purposely designed but the trading mark of Mitsubishi, unintentionally, appeared between the stars. Also, I designed a new look stand. I tried to make the ball look like floating in the air. 18 cm in diameter.

Woods: african winge and tasmanian oak.
