Barnstone Studios PHI Calipers
When an art student is familiar with the Root Rectangles, their armatures, dynamic symmetry and the underlying geometry being considered, calipers can be used as a “shorthand” for designing in a rectangle. The points on the dividers are separated by the proportions of the PHI rectangle. By placing marks where the points divide the rectangle, and then subsequent divisions, the artist can work more quickly, without building the entire armature.
These Barnstone Calipers are hand-crafted from red oak, and feature the Barnstone Studios logo.
