In his twenties, he delved into Islamic patterns, studying ceramics, tiles, and brass etchings in Morocco and Spain, and taking rubbings of classical tile patterns and Zalij. Returning to Boulder, Colorado, he analyzed these patterns using traditional tools, painting them in Gouache, and later carving them onto platters and vases. His explorations continued in India, where he photographed Mughal designs. Although Barchilon now incorporates digital tools, his work remains rooted in a 1300-year-old tradition of geometric design, blending historical influences with modern sensibilities.
