This pattern came to me when I was playing around with Abundies  by Hanny Waldburger.


1. Make a rounded U

2. Round the ends

3. Add a softly pointed arc

4. Add more rounded ends, stacked outward.

5. A rounded bud in the center.

Shading, embellishing, playing.

When it's finished, this looks like a sconce on the wall in a symphony hall or a ballet theater. Something a little bit Art Nouveau, really classy and elegant. So I call it Mezzanine.

I haven't used it often in my work...yet. It makes a tasty little treat, I think.
