Spirals of Foliate 2

The two spiral ends of Foliate 2 are approximately hyperbolic spirals, the shape of a spiral that grows from the outside in, like the tendril of a vine. Steel rather likes this shape when the profile tapers to a point, indeed, the inspiration of Foliate was metal scrap left behind by a pair of tin snips. Organic form is not such a stranger to an industrial material.
