Screen III Limited Edition of 12

Screen III has a lyrical curliness and soft energy. It appears to undulate and dance a little like a Balinese dancer. The pattern can suddenly switch and a series of diagonal and horizontal lines flash back and forward.

Screen III is based on equilateral triangles, with a hole at each apex. Unlike the first two Screens, the pathway on Screen III is not a standard width, in this case it widens and narrows which gives it the more lively character. Like the other screens this can be made in three dimensions, but it has a lot more tiles - 8 versus 2 in the first two screen designs. However, like them it can be made with blocks with the different design front and back, as each tile has its “opposite“ design so in this case it would take 4 blocks to make the pattern in 3 dimensions.
