Asaf Zakay is a geometric glass art visionary. His sculptures and luminaries adorn spaces around the world. His pieces are most known for their unique and mesmerising reflections and embodying the golden ratio in art. Made of the highest quality materials, Asaf is world recognised for his art and creates each piece with perfection and grace. 

 

Asaf first began creating glass sculptures back when he was living in his native Israel. He had long worked with materials like wood and marble, using them to create geometric forms – in particular the interlocking tetrahedron shape better known to him as the Star of David.

When he began working as an installer of Belgian-style stained-glass windows, his natural curiosity led him to experiment with similar techniques in his personal work.

Little did he know the influence this sacred geometry star will have on his portfolio. From his gallery studio in Bangalow on the Australian East Coast, Zakay creates stunning interlocking three dimensional glass sculptures that, when illuminated, fill a room with interplaying patterns of shadow and light.

“As a designer, my creations are fashioned on what is known as the golden ratio, a ratio that appeals to the human sense of beauty and balance. I aim to capture the essence of nature and allow people to see it as if for the first time.”

They are using traditional stained glass techniques, started in England in 1895 by an artist named Louis Comfort Tiffany , who made the iconic Tiffany lamps. I have taken a traditional process and adapted it to create these objects that evolve into other objects.

Sometimes they will try attaching a pyramid to a flat face or inverting aspects of the overall form. It’s a very dynamic process with many decisions and variables. The end result is a very complete and powerful form but it came into reality in a very fluid and dynamic way.
