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
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!
This was the final result, do you like it Mr Escher?
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.
Next time i’ll show you how perfect they are for a Summer drink with friends. Here you can find a perfect drink recipe.
Please feel free to share this project, you can find me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest.
Thank you 🙂
