cutlery

Isn’t this gorgeous? The fork threw me at first, but someone in the comments to the article had an explanation which further reading supported (there are a couple beautiful Roman forks here). Whatever its age, it is very cool tool.

I realize I haven’t posted any of my work recently, I do mean to do that soon!

    I love the Swiss Army knife I was given when I was little (and have travelled with ever since), but this one is definitely more stylish.

    The tool is so interesting! Is it a find or a gift? You have an interesting blog. Thanks for visiting mine!

    I wish it were mine, it was dug up in the Mediterranean region about 20 years ago and is now in the Fitzwilliam Museum, in Cambridge.
    I enjoyed visiting your blog, enjoy your art retreat!
