Variations on a Theme

 This is a flagstone variation. It uses a collapsed hexagon as the base and triangle twists to connect them.

An interesting thing happens when you then fold over the available flaps created by those two twists.

I have a basic crease pattern below. The inner hexes are valleys. They outer hexes are mountains.

Rhombuses shoot off from that. They are mountains.

Triangle twists create the transitions between. They are valleys.

After you accomplish all that, you can then fold over the flaps created on the front to get the design shown.

All the images are of the same tessellation. Respectively... front then back with back light and flash on the camera. Then back and front with back light and no flash. 

It's a fairly simple fold that yields a very nice final result.

A crease pattern is available in a future post where I recreated this tessellation. See <a href="">Spiraling Tessellation</a> for that info.
