Regarding further exploration of pi in the pieces, that certainly is an avenue of exploration. For me, the grace of the character was sufficient to spin off several ideas--I have a podium that I built that was also based on the grace of pi--but the slide is now rotted--if I can find another image I will post it.

Speaking of pi, I saw a beautiful lambda chair made by a woodworker in Berkeley.

One great source of structural ideas is the alphabet--each letter is after all a mini-structure.

I think the mathematical symbol for pi is gorgeous. Combined with my influence from Sam Maloof in the 1970's, I made the following Gallery Benches around 1978.

These are a labor of love--and are not for those in a furry hurry.

So the next time you think you are out of ideas, seek forms in any alphabet --symbols too. Don't forget different fonts either.
