The 4th Deadly Sin... Envy

Post by 22 Crawford St. on February 26th 2014, 10:12 pm

The 4th deadly sin is ENVY - Jealousy; wanting to have what someone has.

... what do you covert?

For me it's this striped dish, 1970, dunno why but every time I go to the V&A I quietly 'paw' the glass. Ohhhh and if they leave the cabinets open I'll also have some of the Henry Hammond... just a piece or two, I'm not Greedy!..... is that another sin?






1. Greed - Wanting too much of something.
2. Gluttony - Similar to greed, but gluttony is the action of taking too much of something in.
3. Lust - The need to fulfill unspiritual desires (not just sexual desires, but this is usually what lust is associated with.)
4. Envy - Jealousy; wanting to have what someone has.
5. Sloth - Being too slow or lazy at doing something.
6. Wrath - Vindictive anger; angry revenge.
7. Pride - Being too self-satisfied

I had a sculptural yunomi in a wooden box by Kaneto san once and didn't know how much they are worth until I sold it for 150.
