The design possibilities of combining 5 and 3 are the exploration here. Some are over layered, some are interwoven, some both on the same sphere. Numbers and forms dominate the designs. 12 and 32 centers show up. #1, governs the cosmos, creativity, capacity. #5, pentagon, Earth, divine breath, spirit, tree of life. #3, heavens, unity of oneness/duality equation. #32, justice. It’s an interesting exploration of numbers. All range from 3.5” diameter up to 4.5” diameter. This is the heart of mathematics for me. It is also my happy place. Deep into the creative pool with little outer interference is my place of choice I guess.

The newest group of Temari is this watery bunch. 3.5” to 4.5” diameters, each flows into and around the others. Depending on the light here on the island the surrounding water can be many variations and shades of this cool feeling palette. Perhaps these might be favorites but then I feel that toward each new Temari that comes to my table. I just love all the ways similar colors come together working in this medium.
