Glad y'all like!

Here's the back story:

Went wandering around a large college campus and found myself in the back of an art building. Racks and racks of seemingly abandonded ceramics projects (pots melted together, fragments from some kiln accident, etc.) were tucked away behind some equipment.

This lovely bit was in deep shadow...hence the grainyness.

excellent photo… so who is the sorriest÷ the sculptor, the sculptee (head) or the person who dropped it?

Hmmm? Could be another clue in the Da Vinci Code, me thinks!

Smooch,

What a cool find! Someone discarded it, and you've given it another life! Wonderful contrasts of light and dark.

Gorgeous shot! And what a great find. Sorry they abandoned it but not sorry so you could find it! Beautiful.
