I don't know much about ceramics, but the first time I saw a decorative faience plate from Gien, I knew what I liked. It was lush with peonies, in unlikely but luminous and vivid shades of red, pink and yellow. Their leaves ranged from olive green to midnight blue to sky blue. A sinuous, Islamic-looking vine pattern, blue with red accents, wound around the rim, enclosed by concentric bands of blue and a more muted yellow.

My Laguiole steak knives are among the most beautiful objects I own, sleek and elegant, perfectly balanced both visually and in heft. There are six of them and, being handmade, they betray minute differences from one to the next--but the basic form is the same: The blade, mirror-clear, extends just over four inches out from the handle of each one. On its business end, the blade curves gently to a sort of saber point; heading back toward its bolster, it swoops up a bit on top.

It's a recent Saturday afternoon at the Rozann-Zimmerman Ballet Center, in a Chatsworth strip mall, and the school's two windowless studios are full of dancers treading familiar and unfamiliar ground. Predictably, one room holds a circle of pony-tailed girls, twirling uncertainly to the strains of Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers," in preparation for their in-studio version of "The Nutcracker."
