1412 Overture

This pattern opposes a star in 14 with a star in 12 yet, amazingly, all the lines are continuous. The tension implicit in this numerical confrontation creates the irregular black patterns. At first glance the triangular forms seem symetric, but on closer inspection, none of the angles line up quite the way you would expect them to. To see this pattern on a platter, visit 'Round Midnight.

These tiles are hand painted and measure roughly 5.5" by 6". They can be made in a great variety of colors. The base price varies from $25 to $35 depending on how they are painted and which colors are used.
