A most ingenious Paradox

Laura-the-Diva calls this Challenge "Better than a Pair of Ducks". She says the word Paradox makes her think of a pair of ducks. It makes me hum the Gilbert & Sullivan tune from Pirates of Penzance.  ; )

This first tile is one I created last year, before I even did the CZT training. I remember spending most of an afternoon focusing on those lines. It's very rigid, but it has something to offer.

I enjoyed the time and was pleased with the result.

I still love playing with Paradox, and I really loved  Margaret Bremner's recent tutorial!

I spent whatever time I could grab this week, playing around with ideas. I came up with this pentagonal version that I like. But then it insisted on having all this curvy, round, flowing stuff.

So it's not the "monotangle" specified in the challenge. I want to play some more, but I also want to get this posted.

Maybe tomorrow I'll add another. And finish up that other post I've been trying to write all week!

Until then: Blessed Be and Joyous Tangling!

  1. Hahahaha... a most ingenious paradox, indeed! I love the pentagonal paradox. The whole picture reminds me of a very cool lady's hat! (May suitable for lady pirates?)
