Project 2 Progress

This is what I have so far.
This is the process I used. Three molds are stacked on top of eachother with the fabric sandwiched between the first and second mold. The string is threaded through the first mold.

The fabric I used in this first attempt did not have enough give in it and there were not any lines created.

Plaster Tile 1- black


In this attempt I switched to a cotton fabric and was able to get the lines in the form.

Plaster Tile 2


I’m trying to figure out the best method of joining the tiles in a field. In the photo some of the tiles are joined with slits that slide into each other but the tile becomes too flimsy when slits are used.

I also have been experimenting with staggering the tiles and having them join straight on. Staggering allows for a better field/panel system but the flaps become hard to work with compared to the straight/ full edge method.





Final Tiles

Not sure if this is the correct way to post but hopefully it works.
These are the three tile series I made; I like the basic idea of each but I would like to continue their development with more iterations to increase the complexity and way they meet together.
