The evolution of C-RCHN

During certain times of the year, I will find sea urchins on the beach. Mostly they are crushed or in pieces. But, on occasion, I find whole urchin shells. Amazingly, I will find tiny urchin shells intact amongst several broken shells that are much thicker and sturdier.

Inspired by the beauty and tenacity of these delicate shells, I created a tangle called C-RCHN. Here it is.

Notice how the tangle progresses.

Which morphed into this:

Here are some examples of using C-RCHN in art work.
