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.
Julia Fractal Pin
The Julia set fractal is named for Gaston Julia, the early 20th-century mathematician that discovered complex dynamics, some of the math used in fractals, shapes Benoit Mandelbrot termed in 1975. All fractals exhibit the same shape as a whole as an individual part does, a property called “self-similarity.” A tree is the simplest example. A branch looks like a tree, and the tree looks like a branch. The Julia set fractal shown here would technically be an infinitely long line, but we reduced its complexity just enough to render the image in two pieces of wood, meticulously joined. We offer these in a variety of wood pairings, mostly reclaimed.
