It's a colour thing

Passing the dishes on the drainboard, I enjoyed how the colours were working together - the blues and "greys" of glass and metal, with a highlight of red, and not to overlook the xhite. Possibly the dish-shapes - curvy, rounded - reinforce this. And the dots and lines. But mostly it's a colour thing.

Crockery and cutlery in and out of the sink can be one of those sources of small daily pleasure. And every piece has a story - finding the three swedish triangular bowls in a charity shop in Morden, for instance, one wintery evening when I was "writing the lines" ... or buying the ridged glasses in a sale at Heals. The intensely experienced, well remembered - and yet, untold - aspects of those stories colour colour the perception.
