Mosaic found its active use in ancient Greece (sometimes written in Rome) and Medieval times, according to subjective opinion, these two periods revealed the potential of mosaic. But this doesn't mean that mankind has stopped using this type of painting, the work "Quilt" is an example of such an application. Moreover, the mosaic is full of geometric shapes that fit perfectly into the discourse of the theme "Art and Mathematics", more about any of the professions described here, you can ask at
This tessellation is the traditional coloring and layout of the Churn Dash pattern. The Churn Dash quilt block is an interesting pattern that is composed of right triangles, rectangles, and a single square. This symmetrical design is based on a square and can be recolored in this manner to produce a tessellating motif.

"Geometric design and especially geometric patterns always intrigued me. I was excited by seeing how patterns changed as various symmetrical arrangements were applied to them. My pieces are created by layering and melting together various shapes and colours of glass in a fusing kiln, which heats the glass to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit."
