My "Islamic Fractal Star" pieces are all variations on the same design, meticulously assembled by combining an eight-fold fractal pattern with a classic Islamic eight-fold rosette pattern. The result is a mesmerizing pattern, part star, part tunnel, part web, and part flower. Look long enough and you will see patterns emerging at all different sizes and angles - squares, octagons, and rosettes, to name a few.

A single traditional Islamic pattern was often realized in different mediums and styles. Three very common ones were two-color tile mosaics; outlines carved as stone screens, and interlaced versions carved as wood or plaster relief. This piece is the analog of a traditional outlined rendition of the design.

Laser cut from Ponoko P1 (7" square) black card stock, everything except the outlines were cut away, leaving one continuous, barely-there piece. It is particularly well suited against a contrasting color background (e.g. hung on a brightly colored wall).
