“Use curves for beauty and angles for strength.” I picked this quote up from the famous British potter Bernard Leach. The concept has stuck with me and proven its relevance time and time again. Compare an oval to a triangle: which has more elegance, and which has more power? Angles also communicate motion, force, vitality and verve. They put us on alert and are used ubiquitously in all aspects of design, fashion, and art for their energy.
