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.
Woven Sevens Islamic Art Screen

I originally made this piece for an Egyptian friend who was returning to the US after 3 years in Egpyt, and wanted to get a piece of art commissioned to give to his mother. I spent weeks developing an original work inspired by Islamic geometry to properly honor the gift. After much study, I eventually was able to understand the star tiling technique well enough to create something new, yet traditional.
The geometry this piece is composed of uses heptagons, irregular pentagons and tetradecagons, all forming an ever-weaving knot. The paths are fun to follow with your eyes!
