Give It A Whirl

Good taste, I am convinced, can be acquired through environment and education; the eye can be disciplined to differentiate between good and bad by a constant looking process.

-Stanley Marcus

The Vitruvian House.  A professor of mine, Thomas Gordon Smith, set out to create a home, according to Marcus Vitruvius Pollio.  The house is wild.  In the oecus, TGS, himself, has frescoed ancient architects and their patrons.  He also collects 19th C. glassware.  It’s typically everywhere.  I thought I was going to break it all while I was there for hors d’ouvres.  Thankfully, I only walked away with a few bruises.
