    I have a less idealistic view of art. It is possible to mass-produce beautiful things. Many Viking Period tortoise brooches are lovely, depending on the level of skill and care with which they were made.

    I come across strikingly beautiful pieces all the time in my studies. That’s one of the reasons that I study small finds!
