Unusually the sun came out today so we went for a walk down by the river. I always love finding interesting bits of pottery (it slows down my gardening considerably), and with all the recent flooding there was a bumper crop today. Here’s a small selection of what I found:

ceramic shards

I don’t know how to tell the age of the shards, but some of them look pretty old to me. I find it amazing to think that pottery and its use has not changed much in centuries. Perhaps 100 years ago some of these shards were used for someone’s Christmas dinner.

I’ll clean them up and see if I can wire-wrap some of the pieces or incorporate them with polymer clay in pendants somehow.
