Fruit Crate Sculpture (2013)

Octahedron

Octahedron

Inspired by Waxing Gibbous by Jeannine Mosely, I began repurposing fruit crates from the school cafeteria for polyhedral sculptures of my own.  In my attempts, I discovered I could construct a sculpture corresponding to any Archimedean solid in which four faces meet at a vertex.  There are only five of this kind:
