Pre-loved. Re-purposed.

Fleeting, fragile / Hand made clay / vessel overflowing / temporal decay

I’ve laid bare all the fault lines

The cracks in the glaze

Dents of time, shards re-assembled

Re-fired, hand painted and saved.

From far away each seems whole

The fault lines form

An intricate filagree pattern

As if from an Artists’ hand.

Closer seen weakness revealed

No longer a pedastal piece in museum

A working vessel, much used and loved
