DetailsSphere Random Vase _Designed by IDEABOX ( https://www.shapeways.com/model/1916206/sphere-random-vase.html?li=search-results-6&materialId=6 ) _Comments written by designer:"A flower vase with polygonal form which was generated by randomly transforming a sphere. You can enjoy the contrast between futuristic digital form and organic form of plants. The base is flat so that the vase is stable." _A sphere is a perfectly round geometrical and circular object in three-dimensional space that resembles the shape of a completely round ball. Like a circle, which, in geometric contexts, is in two dimensions, a sphere is defined mathematically as the set of points that are all the same distance r from a given point in three-dimensional space. This distance r is the radius of the sphere, and the given point is the center of the sphere. The maximum straight distance through the sphere passes through the center and is thus twice the radius; it is the diameter. _In mathematics, a distinction is made between the sphere (a two-dimensional closed surface embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space) and the ball (a three-dimensional shape that includes the interior of a sphere). _The basic elements of Euclidean plane geometry are points and lines. On the sphere, points are defined in the usual sense, but the analogue of "line" may not be immediately apparent. Measuring by arc length yields that the shortest path between two points that entirely lie in the sphere is a segment of the great circle the includes the points; see geodesic. Many, but not all (see parallel postulate) theorems from classical geometry hold true for this spherical geometry as well. In spherical trigonometry, angles are defined between great circles.
