Success for the Elusive P6m Tessellation ;-)

P6m. Not my favourite. Actually, it’s at the bottom of my list in symmetry groups. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. Every symmetry group studied and used for a few good tessellations. The one I’ve done before, that I truly like, is the Notched Louis Cubes (5th one down on that page). There’s not much you can place inside a sliver of a triangle, twelve repeats inside a hexagon, and have it make sense. Easy to do 12 point mandalas, but these are not tessellations in my book.

D. T. = D. T. , a tessellation in symmetry group Pgg

It started off quite innocently. Futzing with a geometric construct from a few months ago. Watching the news, drinking my morning coffee. Sometimes I don’t know where these ideas come from, I just sense that my process might get me somewhere. Let the flow of intuition come. I kept on saving progress shots, 12 of them. And I can tell you, I was quite surprised at the outcome. Cathartic as I’ve heard.
