Product Description

To make a seashell shape, sweep a circle around a helix while applying an exponential decrease in scale, such that successive turns are tangent to one another.  

Seashell Tangent 02 has a decrease angle of pi/8, and a rise angle of 3*pi/8.  It's colored by Gaussian curvature, and available in Full Color Sandstone.  

The toolkit we use to turn these equations into printable objects is called Anethole, and is available on GitHub.
