This work comprises of different cuttings from a musical object. The object is formed from a numerical sequence based on the number of forms of polyiamonds that can be created from an equilateral triangle. The cutting of the object was an intuitive process to reveal the beauty of the material and as such I refer to the object as a diamond and the act of writing this work as diamond cutting.
