Cubes

This is a set of unglazed porcelain cubes in five sizes, with a scaling factor of 2 between successive sizes. The largest cubes measure 6" x 6" x 6", while the smallest measure 3/8" x 3/8" x 3/8". The set can be used to build a wide variety of fractal assemblies through five generations. The large image below exhibits the classical fractal known as the Sierpinski Triangle. Some other possibilities are shown in the smaller photos. The cubes were fabricated in late 2015 and early 2016.
