Rhinestone Lattice fabric tessellation
The inspiration from this piece came from an online origami tessellation generator. It gave me a 9-fold rotationally symmetric, isoarea pattern, which I promptly adapted to 6-fold symmetry with elements staying on one side. This Rhinestone Lattice smocking piece is an adaptation of that 6-fold rotationally symmetric design. See if you can find the points of 6-fold, 3-fold, and 2-fold rotational symmetry in the pattern!
This piece is framed in an open, 2" deep shadow box with a built-in hanging mechanism on the back. The fabric tessellation within was made from a single sheet of fabric, and stitched into shape by hand.
This is a one-of-a-kind original piece by Gathering Folds and was made in 2020.
Hang this piece out of direct sunlight to maintain the vibrant color of the fabric, and enjoy!
