Coasters, Rings, Rotors and Stars
 
Coasters are simply flat polygonal forms, stars are flat forms with symmetrical points, rotors flat forms with assymetrical points and Rrngs are any of the above with hollow centres. Complex Coasters are sometimes called Mandalas. Rings are sometimes called Wreaths.
