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.
Pentacular – A 5-layer Mandala of Lasered Wood
Everything you see here is an expression of the golden ratio, phi, approximately 1:1.618033988749894848204586834…
This ratio is found throughout nature, on the human body and even in weather & space.
This artwork was originally a commission from a Discordian friend (a fun people who worship the number 5) and so I really tried to pack in a variety of fractal modalities of 5. several different transformations occur on each layer as the piece recedes, including some unique fractal arrangements.
It’s 5 separate layers of laseretched & lasercut birch ply, very strong, assembled with 10 stainless steel bolts.
Perfect for shrines, contemplation & meditation.
