Their uses should be apparent, but not strictly so, for where you choose to place a piece and how you intend to use it is none of my business. Part of the fun is in stretching the distance between an object’s function and its sheer appeal to both the hand and the eye. You might wonder: “You did all that just so I can put my stuff in it?” Absolutely.
