knot theories III
isometric hex knot
After designing this one, I wanted to go bigger than I have before. I printed the knot out on one large piece of paper so the alignment wouldn’t be dependent on my ability to tape tiled sheets of paper together. Then I needed a giant hexagon for it to go on. After planing some boards…
unicursal polygonal tercet
Stippled paint creates a unicursal knot design. The aggregation of dots suggests straight lines not present in the artwork. Doubling the individual segments of the knot design does not disrupt the over / under pattern. This single component is connected end to end with two rotated copies to create the knot.
unicursal spiral tercet
The design is an experiment in using spirals in combination with radial symmetry to produce a unicursal knot. Usually I base knot designs like this off of circles and polygons, so this was a new challenge. I originally used this design for some cut paper stationery, shown here. Wanting to take things up a notch,…
