OrderSix Radial Tessellations of the Plane, Using Elongated and Equilateral Hexagons, Rendered with Different ColoringSchemes
I explored radial tessellations of the plane, using only hexagons, in this earlier post. Orderthree tessellations of this type are the familiar regularhexagon tessellations of the plane. With higherorder allhexagon radial tessellations, though, the hexagons must be elongated, although they … Continue reading

A Polyhedron with Eight Regular Hexagonal Faces and TwentyFour Irregular Pentagonal Faces
There are many polyhedra that include only hexagons and pentagons as faces — infinitely many, in fact. Most of the wellstudied ones include twelve regular pentagonal faces, though, but this polyhedron has twentyfour pentagons, none of which are regular, in … Continue reading
