From napkins, bowls and plates down to a range of spatulas
, spoons, forks and knives representing
a range of sizes, this series of flour-based tableware
is nothing if not comprehensive
(but definitely has a limited shelf life).
Created by artist Andere Monjo, each carefully hand-crafted piece was clearly a labor of love.
dishware is not a new concept, as anyone who has eaten out of a bread bowl can attest
to, but this is definitely a unique extreme when it comes to making things from simple flour and water.
Unfortunately, the ingredients
and process clearly require a bit more work before you could imagine seeing these on store shelves – getting bread to be as sharp as a knife or a serving spoon able to carry heavy loads … well, these still have a ways to go.
1. nothing if not 表示“极其，最重要的”，含强烈的肯定意义。
例：He was nothing if not discreet. 他最大的特点就是谨慎。
2. labor of love - something that you do because of love or because you love to do it 心甘情愿做的事，喜欢做的事
例：They always want to pay me for the work I do at the hospital, but I will never accept their money. I do it because it is a labor of love. 他们总是想为我在医院的工作付我钱，但我永远也不会要，我只是出于喜欢而做的。
3. have a ways to go 是一种口语表达，就等同于have a long way to go，有很长的路要走。
