Picking up the big pieces.....

On one trip to the foreshore I decided to pick up larger items such as pottery pieces, bottle parts, nails, tiles, and just about anything that seemed like it had some interesting feature.  Some had marks on the bottoms, others had finger imprints, others just make you wonder who used this last.  I particularly like picking up the handles of old tea cups, mugs and jugs.

some history......what do you think?


  1. Ha, I have the other piece of that rather lovely relief vine - here

  2. The last piece is a fragment of a Medieval encaustic floor tile. I found half of one myself just a fortnight ago on the North Bank. Not common. A friend once found a complete one down there...

    I can dream that one day so will I !
