We’ve seen how a skilled carpenter can create a traditional Japanese Kumiko lattice. Pask Makes wanted to see if the same sort of pattern could be created using another material – steel nails. He started with a wooden template to hold the nails in place, then welded them together and smoothed out the rough bits.
UK lettering artist Seb Lester has a knack for creating repeating patterns. His vibrant and whimsical Monkey Action series currently features two primates playing tennis, and another riding a BMX bike on an Escher-esque course. Both designs are available on throw pillows, laptop cases, blankets, and t-shirts.
Artist Cássio Vasconcellos takes aerial images of man-made constructs like roadways and airport terminals, then stitches them together to create fascinating and surreal new patterns that serve as a sort of preview of an overcrowded future. We’d love to see his full-scale images in person.
