“You don’t see flat canvases in nature.” And that’s why Dick Termes created his Termespheres.

These 3-D spheres came from Termes’ mind, gaining international attention and fans. And the Termespheres are still created to this day. Visitors are welcome at his studio and the Termesphere Gallery outside of Spearfish. Enjoy this gorgeous short film about a truly unique man and his perspective on creativity.
