Hyperbolic crochet

I was so inspired by the show at the Cultural Center that I tried some hyperbolic crochet and coral reef designs last weekend. I made a hyperbolic coral and a attached two anemonies and some seaweed to a flat stone from the Lake Michigan dunes. The images are a little odd--my photographs were quite out of focus (obviously I need some practice) so last night I scanned the 3-dimensional objects and the images were much better, if a little squashed.
The website for the Hyperbolic Crochet Reef that visited Chicago is There are increcible photos and some instructions there.
There are about three days left for the Chicago exhibition, which also includes a Chicago-made crochet coral reef.
