Happy Triangle Friday! Yes, it’s here – week 52! It’s been a glorious year of Triangles but sadly it has to come to an end ūüôĀ A few people made recommendations for this last post (the pyramids were a popular choice) but I thought there was only one way to end Tri Fri really, considering the name of my blog… Bonsoir! C’est le¬†Louvre Pyramid! This beautiful glass and metal triangle was built in 1989 (the...

Happy Triangle Friday! Yes, I know it’s Saturday (sorry!) but I’ve been a busy bee recently and again tweeted a ‘Tri Fri on the go’ last night.¬†I haven’t driven for over a year now so it’s weird that recently I started picking up on these triangles around Lincoln but it’s my last week living here and I’m appreciating and noticing a lot more. We see triangles every day on the roads around Britain. They are...

Happy Triangle Friday! Seeing polished work is great but I also really enjoy an insight into the journey, so I was really happy when I saw these photos: Behind the scenes photos, triangles and lovely bright colours – a few of my favourite things thanks to Sandra Fettingis. I’m pretty impressed Sandra’s tri-tastic creations: They are really summery and would definitely improve any wall! The only problem is, how would you choose? Although, why choose...

Happy Triangle Friday! Now, I know technically it’s Saturday but I was a bit busy last night as it was my end of degree show so I tweeted a Tri Fri ‘on the go’ – I think it was a good enough excuse! It was the Show Thirteen private view last night and some of the second years came to help us by manning the bar. They did an amazing job and I’m not just...

Happy Triangle Friday! ¬†I saw these on the¬†Present and correct¬†blog and knew they were perfect for Tri Fri! Spanish artist¬†Ignacio Uriarte¬†has created some tri-tastic shapes and patterns from set squares: I really like these – they’re simple but quirky. Who knew you could have so much fun with mathematical drawing equipment? Have you seen any lovely triangle things recently? If so,¬†get in touch¬†– you know how much I‚Äôd love to see it! Enjoy the weekend...

Happy Triangle Friday – It’s been a long day! This week, I’ve got something really relevant to what I’ve been busy with recently. Since January I’ve been part of the Auction 13 team and it’s finally the week of the auction! We’ve got 25 brilliant postcards up for grabs here so go and bid on your favourite now – all of the money raised goes towards my degree show, Show Thirteen. We asked The Caseroom...

Happy Triangle Friday everyone!¬†It’s been a long, long week. During one of the late nights I was watching Have I Got News For You with James Blunt as a guest. Remember James Blunt? He sang that really over played, annoying song ‘You’re beautiful’. Well apparently he was on Sesame Street singing a much better version of the song: Just incase you wanted to sing along, here’s the oh so true lyrics: ‘This shape is brilliant…...

Happy Triangle Friday! I¬†think this is my favourite Tri Fri of all 44 weeks so far. You know I’m a sucker for triangles, patterns, bright colours and great ideas so just imagine how I felt when I watched this: Honestly, my only thought was ‘WOW! I need to work for/with these people!’ Of course it’s just my luck , that the creative partnership, Hark (Andy Macgregor¬†and¬†Audrey Roger),¬† has ended! But hey, we can still enjoy...

Happy Triangle Friday! As a girl, I love my clothes, shoes and bags. I follow a few fashion blogs, but I wouldn’t say that I’m a total fashion follower. However, when triangles walk down the catwalk I can’t help but pay attention: I love the light bouncing off and reflections – it’s beautiful. Iris van Herpen‘s work is pure fashion – theatrical, impractical and amazing. She has brilliant attention to detail, here creating here what...

Happy Triangle Friday! It’s mad to think that I’m 10 weeks away from completing a whole years worth of Tri Fri features! I haven’t decided what I’m going to do just yet – would you miss Triangle Fridays if they ended? But before that, there’s still 10 more posts at least! I found Tauba Auerbach’s work on Pinterest the other week and was instantly drawn to it. I wonder why…? The splash on her website...

Happy Triangle Friday! We’re back to design after last week ha I found this tutorial a while back but, like most things, I’ve not had time to try it out yet! It’s similar to the Paper Tigre triangles… but the creative decisions are all yours!¬†There’s templates and everything¬†here¬†– really helpful. I quickly had a go at making one to start my sculpture off… So I’ve got my scissors, bonefolder, sharpie and template printed onto the...

Happy Triangle Friday everyone! On Monday I was linked to (thanks Philippa) an article about triangular flapjacks that had been causing trouble. Did you hear about it? At a school in Essex, triangular shaped flapjacks have been banned after being used as a ‘weapon’ in an argument between two students. Apparently they’re too dangerous and so all flapjacks must now be square shaped – even though squares have 4 corners and triangles only 3. Absolutely...

Happy Triangle Friday! On Sunday my tutor, Barrie, sent me an email about a triangle drawing app. I hadn’t seen it before so I thought I should investigate… With this as the icon, I was excited. Bold and striking – i love triangle patterns! The Triangle draw app, developed by¬†Simon Strandgaard, allows you to create simple, black and white drawings made from triangles. ¬† Users can create random geometric shapes, letterforms and patterns. Controversially, I’m...

Happy Triangle Friday! Just a quick one this week as I’m quite busy, but hopefully it will brighten your weekend: Artist and lighting designer from Denmark, Birgit Ostergaard’s B2 triangle lamp caught my eye. Bright, simple and tri-tastic, the only thing preventing me from buying one of these is the price – ¬£379.99 eeeek! Still, I can window shop for free ūüôā Until next week, I hope you guys have a tri-tastic weekend. As always,¬†get...

Happy Triangle Friday! Today I begin with a quote from one of my tutors: ‘Triangles will save the world.’ – John Stocker 2013. John is a very knowledgable man, so obviously it’s 100% true. Remember, you heard it here first! But until then, triangles will save your Friday evening. I’ve been following the work of Illustrator Niki Pilkington for a while now and I can’t get enough of it: Her lifelike pencil illustrations mixed with...
