As CZT Suzanne Fluhr recently commented on the site, “USA tanglers — VOTE! Bring your tangling supplies in case there’s a line. 🙂

Great suggestions!! Both the voting, and the tangling supplies.

Pittsburgh CZT Sue Schneider joins us today to share her Odir tangle, “pronounced O-dear“. Odir is Suzanne’s 6th tangle on the site, all interesting and unusual.

And Odir has loads of possibilities for variation as you’ll soon discover in Sue’s examples.

Sue writes,

My husband Walt and I have had a busy year travelling far and wide. Last winter we visited lovely Costa Rica, with Odir as our tour guide.

He is named for a well-known and popular Costa Rican soccer player. (Odir Jacques Ferreira (born April 2, 1946) is a retired Brazilian soccer striker who played most of his career in Costa Rica.)

The name is pronounced ‘O-dear’, which our guide said we would easily remember when we were swaying on the rope bridges high in the cloud forest, crying out, ‘Oh, dear, Odir!’

I try to bring back my travel experiences for my students. I was delighted by the Ox cart wheel designs we discovered in Costa Rica.

The beautiful, intricate painted designs on oxcarts (carretas), especially their wheels, are the most iconic form of Costa Rican folk art. From the mid-ninteenth century, oxcarts were used to transport coffee beans from Costa Rica’s central valley over the mountains to Puntarenas, on the Pacific coast, a journey requiring ten to fifteen days. The oxcarts used spokeless wheels, a hybrid between the disc used by the Aztec and the spoked wheel introduced by the Spanish, to cut through the mud without becoming bogged down. In many cases, oxcarts were a family’s only means of transport and often served as a symbol of social status. Each town, family and artisan often developed their own unique patterns, color schemes, and designs.

The carreta’s wheel contains Sue’s inspiration for Odir. Cuppa tea time, lots of lovely examples coming up to admire and study!

Sue’s first example tile “contains Fescu, Pixioze, and Paradox“.

Sue’s second example “has a Krokus background“.

Example number three features Odir with “Fescu, Toodles, Msst, Crescent Moon, Vitruvius.

This next example of three tiles demonstrates several examples of Odir embellishments.

Sue illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Odir below where she illustrates it in another tile with the variation using a double curved line in Step 1.
