Fragile, my foot!
If you think that china is too delicate for the rigors of everyday life, this pic may make you rethink your stance. It’s an image of an electric car perched on top of just four Wedgwood teacups outside the William Ashley store in Toronto. Crazy, no? There is a point here, however. Bone china is in fact the hardest and most durable ceramic available, which means that these Wedgwood teacups, and the venerable manufacturer’s other lines, will last longer and perform better than cheap imitations. So it’s far less likely to end up in a landfill a few short years after purchase. Beautiful and eco-friendly — what more do you want? And as long as we’re busting myths, let’s take on the notion that china should be saved for “special occasions”. Hogwash! Use it every day to bring beauty and pleasure to your life.
