The Crystal Universe
As an artist, I am fascinated by design, and the incredible designs found in nature. Wilson Bentley, a self taught farmer from Vermont, USA, was the the first person to photograph a snow crystal (snowflake) in 1885, and spent the rest of his life recording them. According to Bentley, no two are alike! His book "Snow Crystals" contains 2400, and yes, no two are alike. Designs and patterns abound in the universe, and we are part of that pattern.
