Item Description

Patterns and patterning have always interested me and recently I got around to trying tessellations. A tessellated pattern is essentially like a checkerboard pattern, dark and light alternating, but instead of squares you have shapes that interlink leaving no spaces between. The generally accepted grand master of tessellations is Dutch artist M. C. Escher.

I also enjoy special effects so some of the sections have paint that changes between black and blue depending on the angle of viewing.

Sizing: Mens 8 / Womens 10
