My creative practice as a silversmith and sculptor has been inspired by diagrams drawn by a device recording the interaction of two pendulums, a Harmonograph. This led to an inquiry into mathematical methods that could be useful in visualizing the complex twisting surfaces suggested by these diagrams. The various mathematical approaches drawn upon are discussed in relation to the aims and an attempt is made of finding a common language.
