Each one of these pottery shards
is a piece of someone’s vision.
They are an imagined bowl, cup or platter
headed for the Holiday table
or that special pitcher for the Maple syrup
served on Sunday mornings.
But somewhere en route
to their continued existence,
they met with an insurmountable hurdle.
This in no way lessens their value
as a symbol of a dream.
Each smooth tactile piece of clay
embodies the process it took to ‘become’
and to wear one
is to share in this inexplicable experience!
(Each shard may be worn with either side out.)
