Given some free boundary control points (in blue), we plot the associated harmonic Bézier tensor-product surface.


You can choose the height of any boundary control point.

A harmonic Bézier surface of odd degree is unambiguously determined by two opposite rows of boundary control points. For even degree, the inner rows and in addition a corner control point are determined by control points in the first and last row.
