There are truly an endless variety of shapes and combination of shapes, each communicating its own meaning and message. Sometimes, there are a variety of meanings that are more commonly ascribed to these shapes, particular when used in a religious or magical context. Much the same way that lines have meaning, shapes have meaning and are an important building block in the visual grammar and visual thinking especially to artists. Geometric shapes, specifically, usually suggest organization and efficiency. It suggests structure. Geometric shapes tend to be symmetrical further suggesting order. One particular artist, Simon Pearce
, well-known for his glass pieces, has blended nature’s most basic elements and his definite acclaimed glass forms and functions, with the simple shapes of 1920’s Bauhaus design: circles, triangles, squares, to create his latest collection, the Geo. Geo is Simon Pearce’s newest design made especially for those who love to mix and match modern pieces with treasured heirlooms.
