Why are all Zakay Glass Creations pieces founded on sacred geometric principles?
Naturally then, the intentional use of these natural proportions in sculptures expands our sense of beauty, balance & harmony to optimal effect.
While there appears to be little connection between the artistry of light and sober mathematic principles, geometry has provided structure and a visual language to designers and industrialists for centuries.
For instance, geometric principles have been the driver in the industrial revolution of the 18th century, when their application to the standardisation of components made precision work achievable on a commercial scale. Further, it is known that figures like Kepler, Pythagoras and Leonardo were also educated in sacred mathematic ratios and held firm knowledge about their pivotal role in the universe.
It was however Fibonacci that defined the underlying sequence of numbers that underscores every mollecule in the natural world as the 'Golden Ratio'.
While his 'Fibonacci Sequence' made it official, The Golden Ratio was certainly known by the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Egyptians and even the builders of the great stone monoliths such as Stonehenge.
In more modern times, Leonardo da Vinci used the Golden Ratio in his painting of The Last Supper in both the overall composition (three vertical Golden Rectangles, and a decagon (which contains the golden ratio) for alignment of the central figure.
Entering the world of sacred geometry allows you to newly appreciate exquisite patterns of creation: the molecules of our DNA, the snow flake, pinecones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, the nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the air we breath, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes.
All Zakay Glass Creations are founded on the principles of the Golden Ratio to ensure maximum beauty, elegance and harmony in the spaces they inhabit.
