Pattern Play - ooooo Circles oooooo

Alchemy cocktail table by Allan Copley

The circle motif has been a staple of the design world since there was, in fact, a design world. I wouldn't be surprised to find that cave dwellers drew circles on their walls. Circles are interesting to look at - geometric, yet soft. They can also be imbued with deeper meaning: the circle of life, wedding rings, circus rings. They are containers of form and meaning. Here are some fun examples of circles and dots:
