It is really good to have a blog discussing the philosophy and poetry of objects as a compliment to all the blogs presenting craft and illuminating the making process. I think it is really important for the continued existence of the handmade crafts that people who are not craft artists enquire into the meaning of objects in their lives.
Journalist Ruth Quibell has started a blog called "Precious Things" discussing the signifigance of the things we live out lives with. Ruth interviews artists about their favourite objects and also writes revealing and beautiful posts about her own interaction with objects.
