For me, it is like a soulful connection....a piece will catch my eye, my hands want to hold,
and then if I start to leave...a magnet pulls me back and the piece must come home with me....
it just must!!
This passion is strong when I see and hold an old, worn fragment.
How was it originally used, who has owned it, what has it seen?
Fragments can be used countless ways...
turned into lamps, sconces, over doorways and paintings, even mounted as statues....
but for me, I want them close at hand.
I need one nearby when I work at my desk.....
it will catch my glance,
and then my hands must give it a gentle rub.
As comforting as a child's stuffed animal.
The power of old pieces!!!
These fragments have all passed through my hands on the way to others.
I will be back in France in a few weeks.
Do you have a favorite fragment? Where did you find it?
Would love to see a photo.
