curves and cusps
A repacement system with matching boundary motif.
Also see Bracket spiral frieze…, which uses the same element.

Both bottom quadrants are scaled copies of the whole figure. The top two quadrants are mirrored and inverted copies of each other.

Thank you for faving. Frankly it has been a very long time I added someone to my watch, I am interested to your tiling and tesselation art, that appeal as much to the mind as to the eyes.  I guess you are deeply into programming the algorithm for them by yourself, but do you happen to know any good Penrose tiling or other aperiodic tiling ready made program ?
markdow Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2015
No, but I've seen some nice Penrose stuff, e.g.…… references "Penrose Tiler, Ultra Fractal 4 ... 
Penrose Tiler is a free program you can get here---> [link] "

I haven't seen much of other types of aperiodic tiling.
Aspartam Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
The link is broken ! Too bad, the penrose program I know are rather dull for artistic purposes.
I found (and lost halas) a facisnating article about Penrose tilings in arabic architecture -centuries before Penrose.
Incredibly artsy as well as puzzling.
