Handling something, anything, with care is a profound human accomplishment: it's what we naturally strive to do when we're bringing the lasagne over to the table, or carry a baby over to its cot or telling someone we love about our feelings for them.
These oven gloves celebrate the too often neglected art of being delicate towards, and careful around, what might break or get damaged.
It's so easy to destroy and shatter; the real skill is to handle anything (other people, baking trays and, as importantly, ourselves) with delicacy and tact. These oven gloves remind the kitchen, and the world, of the vital virtue of careful handling.
