Dendritics I, II and III

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

The Copper dendrite glass is evolving slowly, with beautiful jewel fern formations at the edges. I have added white LED’s to the circuit for illumination and a visual indication of the current, which is likely to increase dramatically as the dendrites reach the outer electrodes.

The Iron version has not produced any dendritic growth, just a slowly expanding amoebic form around the central negative electrode..


The Mixed Salts Glass is producing quite a colour range, indicating the flows and reactions of the salts and metals under the electric fields.
