In this tiled surface design, the pathways channeling water tangentially branch off 3 (repeated) closed loops. Each of these 3 geometric loops are radially-symmetrical about a combinatory corner of the original hexagonal tile. The three loops have 3 different scales of visual prominence. In the least prominent of the 3, the loop becomes secondary to the web of tangent paths surrounding it.

The tool paths of the CNC routing bits are individually legible, but explicitly follow the primary geometries (a technique similar to those of Intaglio engraving, where the shape of the tool is exploited to lend varying degrees of sharpness or softness to the design).
