stoveburner.com

Tuesday 15 July 2003

This is yet another website that consists of an ordered collection of related objects. Burners from discarded gas appliances are collected here, and sorted into piles: from stoves [subdivided into stovetop, broiler, hot plate], from heaters [space, hanger, hot water], and from commercial kitchen equipment. Lined up for inspection, these burners invite us to enjoy and compare their physiognomies.

This collection of burners joins the toasters, saw handles, cartes-de-visite, timber samples, manhole covers, more toasters, print­ing presses, bread tags, quilts, more manhole covers, and clutch pencils already noted here. Am I some kind of ratbag, collecting collections like this? A harmless obsession, surely.
