Rotary Shaped Things

Post by SeanP » Mon Dec 21, 2009 1:28 am

Well, my 4YO son recently acquired some new colouring pencils, and I couldn't help but notice they were Rotary Shaped! :D

Saddo that I am, I took some snaps, here.

So that's: Plates, Laptop bags & Pencils... What else, I wonder (other than Rotors and things on our cars?).

I'll have to teach him how to draw Hypertrochoids ;)

Nice! I dare someone to do that for real.

As we are adding 'rotary shaped items' here are the cat bowls we picked up after the old ones were broken.

Saddo that I am, I revisited the cafe today which uses the 'Rotary' shaped crockery (more photos taken!).

They're manufactured by "Homer Laughlin China", a US company. A quick Google turns up their product catalogue, showing their 'Triangle' shapes as they refer to them, in quite a few of their available styles & sets (and in some ugly colours!)
e.g. Their Unique collection, including Catalog
