plaster mold of origami tessellation, by Fredrik Owesen


Originally uploaded by Owesen.

Fredrik Owesen had previously discussed making a 3d mold of one of his tessellations.

Now, it appears that he has pulled it off! I’m very interested in learning the details of this process, especially how he so accurately captured the interior spaces.

A fantastic concept- I’ve long imagined how wonderful it would be to create tiles based on some 3d tessellations, but I had no idea it would look so striking! Hopefully now that he’s figured out a process, we’ll see more designs like this.

How wonderful would it be to make a tiled mosaic tessellation using patterned tiles made up of tessellations? The recursion levels alone would leave my geometry-loving heart pounding.

Looking forward to more of this artwork, Fredrik!
