Kundekari with Persian decoration

Mixing Persian designing style with Ottoman kundekari work

Here is one of the nicest ideas – create a simple pattern and then fill its convex shapes with another pattern. The large pattern in this drawing comes as in the kundekari form from Cem Sultan Mausoleum in Istanbul. The second pattern with smaller shapes is a typical Persian pattern from Chahar Bagh Theological School in Isfahan.

The pattern shown here was developed with free version of Geometer’s Sketchpad.

More about designing patterns like we will talk during the second spring course at Istanbul Design Center. For more information check the >> IDC web site <<
