My design partner, the artist Sarah Gee, is having an opening on Friday, July 9, for a 2-day solo exhibition at the beautiful studio of designer and TV person Brad Gough. Come by if you’re in Vancouver, especially if you didn’t have the fortitude to line up to buy her work at the Cheaper Show.

When I was about 12, my dad and I built four stellated polyhedra (star-shaped, many-sided platonic solids). Dad, a mathematician and math teacher, used the book shown below as a resource and then worked out his own dimensions and angles (you can see his notations right in the book). We hung the three largest polyhedra from the kitchen ceiling and they remained up there all the years I was growing up.
