Geometry, black ochre and a birthday card

August 21, 2010

There is geometry in everyone’s life. It certainly is in mine since I attend geometry courses at The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts. With a compass, pencil and ruler fantastic patterns are made. Start with a circle and then some more, form a pentagon, a triangle, square, divide lengths, connect intersections, and then….
yes we can do this!

Or not quite yet….

I couldn’t stop. This is a birthday card in the making, coloured with black ochre from Morocco.

If you can’t get enough either, have a browse here. Isn’t it just amazing what can be formed and altered by geometry and colour?
