Details Description Starburst II bears an overall resemblance to its predecessor Starburst, except that the geometry is based on 10-fold rather than 8-fold symmetries, and the pattern is rendered in a cool series of blue gradations.
Details Description This piece blends ideas from my previous works Screened Icosahedron and The Light Within. The geometry is the same as the first work, but scaled up to nearly twice the size, and with a new, two-toned color scheme. The piece is lit from the bottom using an LED puck light just as in […]
Details Description As with the first Infinity Flower, the origin of this design is a fractal Islamic pattern, but with several differences. Besides the very obvious difference in color scheme, this pattern also diminishes to infinity in both the inward and outwards directions, and is based on 10-fold rather than 8-fold symmetry.
Details Description The foundational pattern for Diatoms I is a 12-fold outward Islamic fractal pattern. Two patterns of different scales are arranged in opposite corners. The overall effect is one of shapes partially seen, partially hidden, as if floating on a slide under a microscope.
Details Description This 12-pointed star shape is captivating by itself, but when decorated with a five-fold Islamic pattern, it becomes even more vibrant. Since the rhombi that form the faces of the star are not made up of five-fold angles like 36 or 72 degrees (as many people assume), the pattern had to be subtly […]
Details Description Starburst is a fractal pattern which, like its companion piece, Infinity Flower, prominently features the eight-fold rosette commonly found in art and architecture throughout the Islamic world. Gradual shading from yellow through deep red give the piece an appearance of back lighting, drawing viewers into the center. The overall impression is of an […]
Details Description Infinity Flower is a fractal pattern which, like its companion piece, Starburst, prominently features the eight-fold rosette commonly found in art and architecture throughout the Islamic world. Gradual shading from dark green through yellow gives the piece an organic, earthy feel, evoking in viewers thoughts of flowers, fungi, or moss. This piece is […]
Details Description Unlit, this piece appears as a simple, white icosahedron. Turning on the LED light in the base reveals an intricate red-orange-yellow Islamic pattern printed on the interior faces. The effect has been described as “surprising” and “magical” by viewers.
