Texture & Pattern

John Deer

I just came across these photos I took this past winter of John Deer tire tracks.  As a designer, I am drawn to pattern and texture whatever it may be.  Whether it's textile, furniture, art, jewelry, or nature - my eye finds it and appreciates it.
After a newly fallen Vermont mountain snow had covered the ground, JD created art.  The patterns and textures created by the hard working tractor wheels were precise and defined.  I couldn't pass up taking photos of the masterpiece.


  1. Such beautiful patterning from the most unexpected source. I grew up on a farm so John Deere tractors were not seen as a thing of beauty so much as a necessity. Nice to see them in a different light.

  2. Love this! I've found inspiration for lots of my deisgns in simple, common, every day places. I may have to take a closer look at my tractor tires!
