I feel that I am like most and am more attracted to utilitarian design and function, when it comes to my cutlery. However, I am also an artist and appreciate art in all its forms.
With everything that is going on in the world right now I wanted to do something a little fun with this month’s Custom Corner and just pick some cool works of art, with a bit of fantasy overtones, to appreciate. We can all use a little eye candy, at the moment, to take our minds off the rapidly changing social landscape around us.
For this reason, I am not going to write much this month, I am just going to get to the goods and let you drift into the fantasy life.
Stay sharp and keep it real. K&G
