“Break a vase, and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.” — Derek Walcott
“I am intrigued with combining the remnant of memories, fragments of relics and ordinary objects, with components of technology. It’s a way of delving into the past and reaching into the future simultaneously.” — Betye Saar

Most of the broken pots in this shed are left over from the previous owner, Lally, a woman with seemingly endless energy for her gardens…. I always thought I would make something out of them. Perhaps one day; for now they offer me a sort of continuity with past.
Actually, I kind of like them the way they are. Plus, as you say, they give a neat connection to the past.
