Flower Tessellation

Flower Tessellation

infinite-origami on flickr posted this rather interesting tessellation today- it’s a tiling based on pentagonal tiles, with hexagonal spacers. The pentagonal tiles look somewhat like the deltoidal tiles, but different- I’m sure they have a special name but I’m clueless as to what it is.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing the reverse of this piece- there’s a lot of interesting material that is unexplored in the pentagonal tiling space, mostly due to the difficulty of folding it!

This is a nice one that plays well with triangular grid precreasing.
