Herringbone

The Herringbone is my second visual illusion piece, the first was the Café Wall. For this piece I carefully designed a square earthenware slab built tower which optimised the visual illusion.

The visual illusion on this piece is actually called the Zollner Illusion, named after its founder in the late 1800s. In this design the vertical parallel lines appear to be wavy. The effect is created by the intersecting lines at 45 degrees. The effect of wavy lines is thought to be due to how our brains process information from our eyes about angles. The way our brains reconstruct the information from our eyes  makes us perceive that the vertical lines are at different angles than they actually are.

Like the Café Wall, the Herringbone design to me reminds us that what we see is not always as it appears.

This piece is limited to 5.

Recommended retail price £1200 inc. VAT.

The Herringbone piece is 12” high and 4“ wide (all measurements are approximate).
