Woven Sevens - Naked Geometry

Woven Sevens


I made this original geometry for an Egyptian friend. He was returning from two revolutions in Egypt, and wanted to make a gift for his mother. I made a screen of this shape with some words in Arabic he wrote for her.  The geometry for that custom piece has been very popular, so I’m offering it as a smaller piece, approximately 11.5 inches wide, in laser-etched and laser-cut 1/4 inch thick 3-ply birch. Every line is woven with every other line, forming a variety of loops, paths and weavings to meditate upon. The seven sided symmetry contains pentagons, heptagons, tetradecagons and irregular polygons.

Material: 3-ply Birch wood
Thickness: 1/4 inch
Dimensions: ~11.5″ x 11.5″
