The Eternal Arc
Arches National Park
Penn Station NYC
The arc of the heavens reflected in buildings, art, and geography exerts a special effect on humans. Not insignificant in the design of spaces and objects around us, the arc shows up everywhere: L'Arc de Triomphe in Paris, The St. Louis Arch: gateway to the West, geologic Arches National Park, Il Duomo in Florence as well as countless cathedrals, and as 'Arco iris' or rainbow in Spanish.
That there is both beauty and strength in the shape makes it perfect for incorporation into building and nearly universal in brick ovens.
