Musings on mosaics, art and life by Katrina Doran of Doran Studio.

Math is beautiful.

I always think of my sister when I use tape.  She wrapped our presents in an eccentric and obsessive fashion that made us savor the opening of the gift.  We often laughed at the madness induced by having to take so long to get inside a single box.  All the boxes were wrapped that way.  I don't have the same amount of patience with tape.

Dad died and left his books.  He had all of his books, ever, including his books from college.  I understand.  I have a huge library in my studio.  We inherit books, we save books, we savor books.

My son is a print-maker and a book-maker.  His birthday is soon.  I am making art pages for him to print on from Dad's book, Tables of Functions with Formulae and Curves . The book is written in German and English. It is very beautiful.
