Fabric Bowls - First Explorations

After meeting at the Anthropology of Geometry seminar in Manchester, UK, Tam and Ricardo began working on the fabric bowls project that Ricardo had presented on the day. Fabric Bowls allow people to explore curvature through physical interaction with the transformation from 2 Dimensions to 3 Dimensions.


The following images show a few of our initial explorations in making fabric bowls.
