Lately, they're inescapable. Cloches. Cloches everywhere. (You can call them bell jars if you like, but to me that's a bit too Sylvia Plath.) At first, I'll admit, these struck me as a bit twee, but I'm beginning to come around to them. You know how, if you want to make a photo stand out, you put it in a frame with a really, really wide mat? Well, a cloche is the equivalent of that, but for three dimensional objects. It says, "hey, look at this thing. This thing is really special." What can you put under a cloche? The possibilites are nearly endless.
