The questions we confront when placing pattern on form include:
- What are the formal qualities of the 3-D object? How might the pattern echo or contrast these?
- What is the visual point of emphasis, the pattern or the 3-D form?
- Why add pattern? How does a repeating 2-D pattern change the 3-D form?
- How does the pattern design relate to the use and meaning of the 3-D object?
