Convenience and Beauty


Today is a cold windy Sunday and I’m thinking back to things I made last winter. On the left is a cozy for my french press that I cut from a sweater sleeve. Easy to make, pretty to look at, and rather effective. However, most mornings I just wrap my press in the dish towel that is closest to me at the time.

On the right are some salt dough ornaments. This morning I was thinking of laser cutting something similar but now that I look at this photo, I’m torn. I love the imperfect shape the salt dough has. But the dough is fragile and a pain to send in the mail. Oh the tension between convenience and beauty.
