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.
Penrose Field Pendant (Small)
The penrose tiling is the perhaps the most iconic form of modern mathematics. It is an elegant way to “tile the plane” in five-sided symmetry using only two rhombi, 36˚ and 72˚respectively. It can expand infinitely without repeating any forms, a quality known as “aperiodicity.”
What really matters is that it’s beautiful. This is the smaller of my two Penrose designs, the larger one is here.
