About the author:
After completing the twelve-month Postgraduate Architecture Course at Shokugei Gakuin, Toyama, Japan in 2009, Des King returned to Australia, and set up a workshop on the Gold Coast, Queensland, where he makes shoji and continues to explore the many advanced patterns in kumiko-zaiku.

Book 3 Hexagonal Patterns

Authored by Desmond King

Book 3 Hexagonal Patterns is the third and final book in the Shoji and Kumiko Design series, and follows on seamlessly from Book 2 - Beyond the Basics. In Book 3, Des King gives detailed, step-by-step instructions on making 45 stunning patterns in the hexagonal jigumi arrangement, ranging from the very simple, to the highly complex and extremely difficult.

More than 500 photographs and diagrams guide you at each stage on making these patterns using tools found in any Western workshop, and simple shop-made jigs. As with Book 1 and Book 2, no specialised tools are required for any of the patterns covered in Book 3.

The patterns in this book are indeed items of art, and can be applied in a broad range of furniture and artistic designs to set your work apart from all others.
