Inspired by connected sum constructions of surfaces and knots, I created modular block print stamps to create visual representations of surfaces and knot mosaics. With these stamps, I can create a variety of images. This paper describes the process of making the prints from inspiration to creation, and the influence of Chinese art and crafts.
