The hexagon might well be my favourite geometric shape. There’s a certain elegance in it’s simplicity, a beauty that transcends its geometric nature. It’s a reminder of the intricate patterns woven into the fabric of the universe, of the interconnectedness of all things.

It manifests in various contexts, from the molecular structure of crystals to the architectural design of honeycombs (previously a source of inspiration for my series ‘where did honey go?). This adaptability speaks to the resilience inherent in nature, among other things, a quality I try to emulate in my own endeavors.

Moreover, the hexagon evokes a sense of harmony and cohesion. Its repeated presence in the natural world serves as a testament to the inherent orderliness of the cosmos. In a world often fraught with chaos and uncertainty, the hexagon offers a sense of grounding, a reassuring reminder that there are underlying patterns waiting to be discovered.
