Pattern Play

Sorry for my absence! The past month of my life has been a whirlwind – a wedding and a honeymoon. Yipeeeee. I guess I’m a WIFE now? Weird… There will be pictures to come soon (the world holds its breathe), but for now, let’s talk about patterns.

Marni’s Pattern Play Has Been Lauded for Years: From Gingham to Floral to Dots and Beyond!

Patterns are all around us, and technically speaking, are not a “man-made” invention.  Natural patterns include spirals (like in seashells, or in the golden ratio), waves, ripples (in sand dunes from the wine), tilings, cracks, snowflakes, and those created by symmetries of rotation and reflection. Almost all natural patterns has some underlying mathematical structure; think about the Fibonacci sequence or fern leaf fractals.

Although not quite organic, textile patterns seem to have an innate way of capturing our five sense – and maybe most in the sixth sense – style. Some say the sixth sense is paranormal activity or telepathy….but that’s just a rumor.

Doesn’t everything look better with some symmetry – maybe  a repeating line, circle or square. 

Gingham and other fun textile patterns!
