Graves - kumiko play

A variation on your very first linear design. I needed to add elements to add stability. Right direction?

Medallion or shield pattern.

Moon like pattern.

Moon flipped.

Let me know if / what you like about any of them - that will give me a bit more direction.

Beech shoji with a SW Fruitwood stain on the frames with Port Orford Cedar Kumiko in our Fibonacci sequence kumiko pattern.

The overall pattern is a Fibonacci series (1,1,2,3,5,8 ...), and various sections of the pattern show Golden Rectangles (1-1.618), squares and various other pleasing geometric proportions.

Yes, we actually think about this while laying out a kumiko screen design!
