Artist's description:

(THIS PIECE IS AWAY ON EXHIBIT TILL LATE OCTOBER 2017. You can still purchase it but understanding that it will only be delivered in November. Thank you!)

Numbers and geometry come to the fore in this piece, where the numerical quality of the Arabic characters is remembered.
The basic idea is simple: replacing the dots on the faces of a dice with the first six letters, each in a Square Kufi pattern harmonized with all the others. The humble dice is elevated to a whole new degree of visual interest and dynamic interaction of shapes. But the basic structure of the object is respected: the letters that add up to seven are placed opposite each other.The piece can be turned on any side, each angle of view offering a different colour palette.
The base, a piece of art in its own right, takes the concept of number further, into the realm of geometry. The three ribs are the visible parts of the virtual sphere which encompasses the cube, and it shexagonal projection is given tangible form in the base. Thus all parts of the piece are in relationship to one another, with letters and shapes brought together by Number.

"Dice" comes with a booklet detailing the story of the piece: a deeper look at its meaning, photos of the sketching and making process, and instructions for assembling and caring for it. I recommend consulting the latter before unpacking the piece.

Materials used:

Acrylic on wood, laser-cut, hand-assembled, painted and varnished. Base (made by Josh Cranswick): Solid walnut, steam-bent and hand-carved.
