Naked Geometry is art and jewelry inspired by mathematics and nature. All of our woodwork is created in Pittsburgh community maker-spaces from sustainable materials, using a combination of laser cutting and traditional craft. The hardwood we use is either reclaimed, dead-fall, or ethically sourced. The plywood we use is LEED, F.S.C.-certified or better. Our findings and chains are nickel-free. Our cords are waxed cotton. All geometric art and design is created in-house by a small team of eccentrics.
A wall piece inspired by Islamic Geometry and clustering molecules.
I challenged myself to create a semi-regular grid using only 5, 6 and 7 sided polygons, and then wove a perfect knotwork of inter-connected stars throughout. Etched in a two-tone style with some of the birch wood significantly darkened by the laser and other parts sanded white for a very bold, graphic approach.
For the window or the wall, or in a shrine.
