Ceramic artist Paul Barchilon creates intricate patterns that take us on a voyage of discovery within the circle. Barchilon studied ceramics at the University of Colorado but it was not until he began to explore Moroccan art that he found his niche. Primarily self taught, he learned traditional methods of dividing circles and bisecting angles with techniques that have remained unchanged for millennia. Working from a 1,300 year tradition of geometric design, Barchilon's original patterns pay homage to their sources while maintaining a modern sensibility. Barchilon has traveled the world, researching pattern and line designs in Morocco, India, Turkey, Spain, Peru, and China. His fascination with traditional geometric designs has resulted in rich interpretations of these fantastic patterns.
