Scorpion Curve Fractal Inlay Pendant - Naked Geometry

Scorpion Curve Fractal Inlay Pendant


The scorpion curve fractal is one we built from scratch. It was inspired by Jeffrey Ventrella’s research into fractal curves, and particularly his discussion of reflection in fractals. 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 scorpion curve shown here has an extra flip every time it iterates, so that’s what gives it its spiral tail. It looks like a scorpion to us, or maybe smoke. We offer the pendants as padauk or purple heart set into figured maple.
