Summary

Shadowfoldsare a rich blend of traditional patterns expressed in a contemporary style. This combination of old and new evokes timelessness associated with tradition, and the sense of exciting innovation so prevalent in our time. Shadowfolds are made from cloth, and lend a soft and warm appeal, that is a sharp contrast to other materials typically seen in these geometric designs. Cultures throughout history use patterns in architecture and craft. Some of the best examples of repeating patterns, also known as tessellations, are found in mosques and palaces built in the Middle East.

Author Biography


Jeffrey Rutzky has always had a passion for arts and crafts, and has integrated them with his desktop publishing skills to create unique works of art. He is also the author and designer of several papercraft books, including Kirigami Kit, TearPlanes, Jewelgami, and Bugagmi. Rutzky works as an artist and graphic designer in New York City.

Chris K. Palmer is a professional artist who has been designing and folding origami since childhood. In Granada, Spain, he was inspired by the mosaic tilings of the Alhambra. Persistent effort and study of the Japanese hira-ori technique led Palmer to make the leap from paper folding to Shadowfolds. Palmer has taught art and architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder. He now resides in California.
