   Pleat tessellations: Masks.

Joel Cooper uses pleats on triangular grids to build extraordinary masks.
Pleated square grids also create layers that can be pulled out to create various features.
Here are some experiments with a few different approaches to this problem.
These masks are very difficult to photograph because their appearance depends so much on the lighting.

Medium: elephant-hide (1, 5), tant (2,3), stone lokta (4).

  1. Curry monster. 2. Old king. 3. Unfinished mask. 4. Stone mask.
