Math and Art

Today while visiting the Math Twittersphere, I found this great resource called Math Munch.  It is a weekly digest of internet resources for math teachers (specifically middle school teachers), but it has some FABULOUS math and art resources.

This is called a Temari Ball, created by Carolyn Yackel.

Being a Math and Art fanatic, I wanted to find out more about these!  Here is a YouTube video, describing how to make this traditional Japanese ball (originally they were children's toys!)  and then a step by step instruction guide.

I REALLY want to learn how to make these!
