David,

My understanding of "gobo" is anything that's placed between a light and the subject, i.e. "go-between", so technically the "patterns" in your picture that you use in your projector lights are gobos too.

In addition a cook, cookie or cucalouris is a more practical shadow maker placed at some distance from the light to create a broken shadow pattern, along the line of Dennis' broiler pans with holes punched in them, or black wrap used the same way. Commercial cooks are made from wood or cello and can be purchased from grip equipment manufacturers and have the advantage of being predictable and reusable, although they are difficult to store and transport unless you gave a grip truck.
