Diatom Art

Recommended Posts

I was watching a podcast about Intelligent Design and the speaker shared microscope slides of Victorian era diatom art.  They look like fractals.  They are gorgeous and fascinating.  

This is a collage of different diatoms.  Apparently, diatoms come in different geometric shapes.


This is a closeup of a single diatom.

Gorgeous. I’m an embroiderer so I can imagine copying these beauties that way— they’re like gems!

I made a few quilts for nephews & niece. I dont sew much anymore, but now I'm thinking about a diatom top!
