elementals

Augers and coils, spirals and helicies, represent my curiosity in the elemental form. These structures occupy the intersection between the man-made (artificial) and the 'natural'. Piles of these shapes may be found on the floor surrounding a potter's wheel or machinists lathe, they may also be the same essential structure of DNA, rope, an induction coil, or an Archimedes' screw.
