## The Clebsch diagonal surface with colored lines

This version of Clebsch's famous diagonal surface model features colored lines. One intersects the surfaces in a line and a hyperbola, the another one in three lines.

## Smoothed Togliatti quintic

A Togliatti quintic surface is a so-called world record surface. Among all quintic surfaces, it has the maximum possible number of singularities, namely 31. Our model is a smoothed version of such a surface.

## A smoothed Kummer surface

The photo shows a smoothed Kummer surface in steel (inflated with bronze). This post also features links to plastic versions of this shape. The Kummer surface is a classic from the 19th century; our model is a smoothed version of it.

## Dancing torus knot

This object looks like a piece of art. But in fact, it is "just" a mathematical curve, called 7/3 torus knot. Imagine a donut, and then tie a cord around it in some interesting way.

## Tetrahedral symmetric cubic

Cubic surfaces are classics from the 19th century. This particular cubic is smooth and has tetrahedral symmetry. All 27 lines are real, but only 24 are visible in the model because 3 are infinitly far away.
