The original concept for this design was: cogs. The idea of cogs to me brings up images of the workings of clocks but also more Victorian contraptions that have similarities with steampunk.
I knew I wanted to create something with circles; there is just something poetic but strong about them. I was starting to get to grips with the software tools and therefore a lot of the design occurred organically.
I chose the particular shapes because Icosahedron is fun to say, and it sparkles real nice. What can I say, I’m a Niffler* at heart.
*A Niffler is a creature from J.K Rowling's Wizarding World that really likes shiny objects.
