### Gridded Patterns

1. 1. Gridded Patterns Stamps!
2. 2. Creating a pattern <ul><li>Determine a structure. In this case, a standard grid </li></ul><ul><li>Determine an interval. ( distance, size, negative space) </li></ul><ul><li>Determine a motif. ( element, here a pentagon) </li></ul><ul><li>Consider options: rotation, integration, alternation </li></ul>
3. 3. Structure Standard Grid Staggered Grid The grid can also be comprised of diamonds, triangles, rectangles . . .
4. 4. Interval
5. 5. Options: Rotation ¼ turn clockwise no turns alternating rows of 1/4 turn and reverse
6. 6. Linear Pattern Field Pattern
7. 7. Foursquares
8. 8. Options: Integration
9. 9. Making the stamp Motif It should be asymmetrical to allow for rotation It should touch (or get really close) to two sides to allow for connection foursquare
10. 10. Making the stamp Motif It should not have too much open space to the edges, this will help prevent fouling (accidental inking) HINT: in this material, straight lines and angles are easier to carve than smooth curves!
11. 11. To do: <ul><li>Design a motif on paper </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer design to eraser and carve (remove about 1/8 th inch or the thickness of a metal ruler </li></ul><ul><li>Create various linear patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Create various foursquares </li></ul><ul><li>The fourquares are a motif themselves, later use them to create larger field patterns </li></ul>
