Pyramid Evolution

shapes

It's safe to say that I'm quite passionate about pyramids. I'm not entirely sure how it all began, but from the moment I started working with them, their captivating forms had me hooked. The perfection of their shape is visually satisfying in ways that are hard to describe—it feels complete yet dynamic, grounded yet reaching towards the unknown with each tapering angle.

I'd like to share the journey and evolution of my very first pyramid design. It all started with eight pyramids, which I arranged into what I called the pyramid cluster.

 

Eight white paper pyramids sitting on a white surface.

 

The initial pyramid cluster was a paper headpiece, first crafted in white Tyvek.

I explored many other colors including red, gold, and a variety of prints. This arrangement of pyramids became the foundation of my first headpiece series, Headscapes, where I added various objects to create different environments.

The headpiece took its final form in black paper for the Crystal Habit headpiece series.

I was struggling to make my fragile paper creations more wearable and shareable until someone suggested exploring 3D printing. The pyramid cluster was one of the first designs I scaled and experimented with in new, durable materials. It evolved into the Pyramid Cluster Ring for my first jewelry collection, materialized in steel—tough, rugged, and uniquely different each time.

I then outlined the pyramids to form the Pyramid Cage Ring, casting it in silver and using liver of sulfur to play with light and shadow.

Scaled even smaller, the pyramid cage design became a pair of earrings, with the silver in its pure form, creating a mesmerizing cluster of lines.

I continue to incorporate the shapes from the pyramid cluster in other pieces, finding new ways to explore their potential. However, I believe that the evolution of the original design has now reached a satisfying conclusion, embodying the completeness and refinement I aimed for from the beginning.
