Etruscan heaven

The Rome dinnerware was pro- duced in a limited edition in 2006, in Maryland, on Czech ware,
with decals from China. I have since offered the designs to some Italian restaurants and to the American Academy in Rome, but there have been no takers.


This design for one of two salad/
dessert plates in the set is
based on a diagram of Etruscan heaven I discovered in a book
in the AAR’s library. The Cardo
and Decumanus live on as the organization of all Roman military camps, and in Philadelphia as Broad and Market with City Hall in their center.
