Escher: a DIY idea

Escher:  a challenging DIY project for me!

The peculiarity of this project is that my idea came out from a Escher’s beautiful drawing : ” Metamorphosis”.

Last 21th of June was the first day of Summer and i wanted to make a new DIY project perfect for this period.

I love Escher but “never in my life” i could ever imagine that his visionary drawing would fit in my idea of a simple drinks coaster.

Sorry for that, Mr Escher 🙂

HOW TO MAKE A DIY DRINK COASTER FROM AN ESHER DRAWING

THE PROCESS:
Starting from a cork sheet i’ve cut off different hexagonal pieces.

They were perfect in their simplicity, but … i was looking for something different.

So i started to paint them in the colors i like the most in this period, green, white and gold.

The suggestion to draw and paint them came out from Escher’s one: the hexagonal pieces are geometrical cubes with different shadows.

I’m an architect, i love shadows and perspective geometries!

I did like it…but it was missing of some “gold”.

The solution was to write some special words that looks perfect for a Summer Aperitivo.
