Artist's Description

George Grater has been with me for a long time. For 14 years and 2 months to be precise. I purchased him from Target, at the time moving and needing to equip my new home, he was the cheapest grater that I could find with the small grating holes and not just the nasty punched holes that only make sawdust of anything. (Why did someone ever ever think those sorts of holes would be any use at all except to catch on your jumper sleeve or graze your hand???)

As I said, me ‘n George go way back. Longer than my marriage. But the time came a long time ago to replace George. His holes have been pretty blunt for quite a few years. A good grater is hard to find, and to be frank, these days…you get what you pay for. Never thought I’d find myself thinking $50.00 was a reasonable sum to pay for a grater…but middle age bourgeoisie has set in……..

Ta Daaaa please welcome Philomena, the very stylish and shiny young lass to light up George’s life. She didn’t cost $50.00. She was mere $3.95 in the Brookton co-op. I told Ed she looked cute, but wouldn’t work. He was keen to prove me wrong, so she came home with us. She has sharp grating ability, the necessrary small grating holes, a stylish, stable, yet restricting 3 faceted shape. It was not until we brought her home and placed her next to George, that I noticed his happy, slightly nervous and sheepish smile. We can’t retire either of them now, even when I one day purchase the super dooper flash heavy duty spunky $50.00 grater from my very favorite kitchenware shop.
George and Philomena will live on in our kitchen as a happy pair.
