beautiful and/or useful

‘Let us house these vessels and utensils in something beautiful – something that answers in its material and design and craftsmanship to these noble vessels.  Hence let us find fine wood, and let us expend time and skill on designing a novel housing.  It is appropriate.  It echoes the music of the right itself, we might say, rather than setting up some alternative clangour.’

Thomas Howard – Hallowed be this House
