When our son brought home his interest in irrational numbers and mathematical theorems, his excitement was contagious. His knowledge far outstrips mine, but I shared his fascination with Pi as a middle schooler. It is really fun to think of numbers unfurling in space, marching out beyond imagination and light. I also rediscovered e or Euler’s number while reading Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures. In a scene in the celebrated movie, the protagonist Katherine Johnson used Euler’s number to calculate the trajectory of John Glenn’s space capsule on a blackboard. That moment inspired me to plot the numbers of e using a color algorithm – my own take on a color trajectory. I wanted to engage numbers in a new way and found there was an architecture, a different kind of reveal as I painted row after row of squares that looked like chiclets. I found cadence in irrationality and a new correspondence with color.
My godmother used to quip that the cheapest way to renovate any home was with a fresh set of throw pillows and a new coat of paint. Well, we’ve got you covered, so to speak, with these gorgeous, decorative velvet throw pillow covers.
Medium weight velvet with a soft, plush short pile. 100% polyester. The back is a very thick and durable 100% cotton called Hopsack.
Handwash or wash on a delicate cycle in cold water. Hang-dry or dry on low heat for best results. If ironing is needed, use medium heat on the unprinted side of fabric. Do not wring. Do not dry-clean.
