A Quintic with 15 Cusps

This quintic with 15 cusps is a so-called world record surface: No other quintic is currently known with more cusps. In fact, it is known that quintics cannot have more than 20 cusps, but it is not known if there are quintic surfaces with more than 15 cusps!

If you want to go for surfaces looking really singular then you will have to choose another production method, e.g. laser-in-glass. See MO-Labs.com for models of this type.
