Our largest ever light!

News From Zakay Studio and Gallery Local glass artist, Asaf Zakay, is preparing to ship his signature piece, the Tetra Matrix, all the way to Washington State from his studio and gallery in the Northern Rivers. The piece is one of the largest ever created by Zakay. This $25,000 commission has been made using 576 triangles of dichroic glass, the shape based on the geometric design called a tetra matrix or the 64 tetrahedron. The best way to describe the shape is that it is 64 tetrahedron’s joined together or 8 star tetrahedrons. A star tetrahedron was depicted by Da Vinci in the Vitruvian Man.   Asaf started creating geometric sculptures in 2005 and displayed them at local markets around...

Introducing the Tetra Matrix - 64 Tetrahedron Glass Sculpture

The incredible Tetra Geometrica sculpture and is tetra matrix in shape. The Tetra is the result of a discussion between designer, Asaf Zakay, and physicist, Nassim Haramein.  It is the intrinsic conceptual element of Haramein's Unified Field Theory, in which he describes the structure of the vacuum as a fractal geometry based on Platonic Solids and Archimedean geometries. The Tetra is available in a variety of glass colours, including clear double bevelled glass, clear sapphire blue glass, clear emerald green glass, clear rose glass dichroic clear glass, dichroic grey glass.   Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which gives the glass dichroic optical properties. This causes an array of colour to be displayed and the colours...

What glass can I choose for my light or sculpture?

There is a huge range of types of glass that resident artist, Asaf Zakay, uses in his hand-crafted pendant lights and sculptures, all specifically chosen to complement the shape he has created. By linking the wisdom behind colour therapy and the sacred knowledge of geometric art and symbols Zakay can combine your choice of colour and sacred geometric shape to create a potent and personalised healing tool. Colour therapy has long been held as an incredible tool for realigning and stimulating our energy flow or Qi. We have 7 energy centres, if one of these is not functioning properly we feel unwell both mentally and physically. Each energy centre is linked with a colour. Dichroic Glasses This is glass that has been treated...
