Star Magic - Naked Geometry

Star Magic


This four-layer birch piece is a meditation on aperiodic tiling and traditional Islamic star geometry. It’s a smaller version of “Wooden Magic”, a one of a kind piece made for President Obama’s visit to our shop.

It’s a twelve-sided symmetry, expressed in an aperiodic tiling, layered with a sub-grid and a traditional Islamic star knotwork.  From different angles it can appear both airy and also complex.

It is beautiful with light through it, recommended to hang in a window, or against a brightly colored wall.

Approximately 11 inches wide, held together with 4 tiny stainless steel bolts.

My favorite layered piece so far!
