Details

Lambda Nu, as its name implies, is a playful interchange of two of the most important symbols in optics. Lambda Nu has an almost skeletal form, with numerous sharp interchanges and branches. About midway down, several of the forms hold a clear acrylic sphere at their focus. Sanded and polished to a mirror finish, the grain of the cocobolo really sings.
