Welcome to the English part of my site. Its main subject is Islamic geometric ornament. You can find some examples of artwork produced in colaboration with Maria Roelofsen, some of my own designs of patterns and puzzles and an overview of lectures and workshops I delivered on this subject.
Unfortunately, till now, I produced teaching material on Islamic geometric pattern in Dutch only. I hope to publish material in English, Farsi and other languages in the near future.
The part of this site written in Dutch shows, among other issues (click on the letter to go there):
a An article on a lesson strand in which the students learn how to design Persian mosaics and actually design new ones themselves.
b A list of available downloadable lesson material.
c Pictures of students doing the lesson strand.
d Pictures of students presenting their end products.
e Pictures of the end products of the students.
f A series of pictures showing how a peice of art was made starting with a students' design.
g A guest book. Please leave your comments there.
h Information on how to contact me.
