Wire-woven Kagome is a kind of Periodic Cellular Metal, which is known to have high strength, stiffness for its weight, and potential for mass production. In this work, we developed a new structure that mimics ${\alpha}$-cristobalite. First, an ordinary wire-woven Kagome was fabricated using metallic wires, and the tetrahedral cells were then filled with metal balls and epoxy. The wire-woven Kagome was transformed to have a negative Poisson's ratio by carrying out a specified amount of initial deformation. The fabrication possibility and kinematic behavior were checked by using FEA simulation. Finally, the mechanical properties were measured using compressive tests.
