Chapter 4 Cut and Fold Black Paper Designs Sheet 4

Sheet 4 was an exercise in pure experimentation. I realised that with a square I would have limited symmetry options so I tried the same process using an equilateral triangle (3 lines of symmetry), a regular pentagon (5 lines ofsymmetry) and a regular hexagon (6 lines of symmetry). I distorted the Hiroshi and Estoile as necessary to fit and discovered yet another way to generate shapes from a basic symbol.

  1. The 2 middle ones remind me of Baltimore applique designs. Lovely.
